Voted Best Coffee & Tea in Alameda County by KRON 4’s Best of the Bay in 2009, Eon Coffee incorporates health-oriented ingredients and specialty-grade arabica coffee beans into a plethora of café dishes and drinks. The shop’s roast master manually roasts rich flavor into small batches of organic, fair-trade beans before filtering the grounds with pi water. Baristas then stir in assorted flavored syrups and handmade espresso to fashion caffeinated favorites such as cappuccinos, vanilla lattes, and seasonal frappes. Eon Coffee’s commitment to healthy drinks goes far beyond its smoothie offerings; sugar-blocking mulberry and other antioxidants fuse with steaming mugs of tea and iced lemonades to refresh and nourish the body better than a morning swim in a vat of orange juice.
The café’s chefs churn out tasty sandwiches, wraps, and paninis filled with Omega-3-rich krill, concealing a hefty punch of vitamins within flavorful entrees available for dine-in or carryout. Live performers occasionally take to the café’s stage to pluck out a few tunes for the guests lounging over drinks in the café’s plush seating, basking in the sunlight of the outdoor patio, or trying to decipher the haiku the barista wrote in their latté’s foam.

As its name would suggest, The Memory Tea has lounge areas designed to evoke a touch of nostalgia. On the pumpkin-colored walls, framed copies of comic books and shelves holding scale replicas of classic motorcycles tickle lovers of Americana. The cafe also has flat-screen television hooked up to a (modern) video game system. In cushy leather chairs, visitors can enjoy the cafe's milk tea, infused with boba pearls, or form fruit-flavored smoothies into a rainbow of existentially doomed snowmen.

Shawn Shay grew up on the East Coast, feasting upon that region’s sandwiches, which rely heavily on meatballs, steak, and other meats. His future wife, Wendy, was enjoying California-style sandwiches, sprinkled with emerald fistfuls of veggies. In Shay’s Café, the two now combine their culinary passions beneath the eatery’s blue and gold walls, which glow in the natural light from floor-to-ceiling front windows. The light pierces the steam that rises from soups wrought from adventurous ingredients such as kaffir lime leaves, leeks, and fresh asparagus. The menu divides signature sandwiches by coast, with Eastern favorites including philly cheese and Western options laden with pesto, brie, and grilled salmon. Glasses of beer and wine form toasts, plinking occasionally like a xylophone player with only one mallet.
