"Grilled Cheese Invitational" Who is going?!


Looks interesting....has anyone been before?! Is anyone going?! Thoughts?

I want my coffee : no starbucks , no peets

One of my friends mentioned " Its a Grind " in walnut creek. Has anyone heard of this? Apparently its hidden in the Nob Hill Foods Shopping Center on Oak Grove....

I'm talking no big chains. If I'm going to chalk up 4 bucks for a latte ( for that amount I could buy a whole gallon of milk ) where should I go? Looking for consistent quality, easy calm atmosphere, friendly baristas and free wi-fi would make it superb.

Any ideas? Looking in East Bay like Concord, Walnut Creek, Alamo etc

Does Starbucks make any good food?

no the food isn't that great, however with the gift card you could buy books, cd's, gift sets, journals and dvd's! lots of options besides food. Also check out the trail mix' at the front of the line by the register.
