Tomate Cafe is first and foremost a neighborhood spot, so it isn’t a place you’re likely to just stumble upon. It’s in a part of West Berkeley that’s half houses and half warehouses, so if you’re here, you came on purpose. Which you should, because it does one of the best breakfasts in town. Order at the counter (get the Harvest Breakfast, which comes with fried apples and delicious zucchini potato cakes), then sit out on the patio if it’s warm enough, or grab a table inside. You’ll probably end up next to a family and an old guy doing the crossword, which makes for the perfect laid-back breakfast situation.

Rose’s Cafe in Cow Hollow has great granola, pastries and an excellent breakfast pizza. Hit it in the morning for an outdoor breakfast.

Blue Bottle on Abbot Kinney might not be the coolest coffee shop any more, but the coffee is still good, and there are usually food trucks outside.
