Brewed Awakening A favourite cafe of mine, but the hot chocolate, in the words of a friend "tastes like they dumped sludge from the Bay in my cup." Not as abhorrent if you ask for a shot of vanilla (for which they will charge you extra, although I think I'm doing them a service.) Wonderful establishment for just about anything else.
Berkeley Espresso The hot chocolate starts out ok, but gets bitterer and cruddier as you go. I'm also not impressed with what I paid for it. 1900 Shattuck Ave (between Hearst Ave & Berkeley Way) Mon-Sun 6 am - 11 pm
