Coffee & Treats in Hayward


Select Local Merchants

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.

The Mexican Restaurant & Bar brings the border a bit further north with cuisine that captures the vivacious spirit and bold flavors of a homespun Mexican meal. Using ingredients such as certified Angus beef and wild-caught Canadian Atlantic salmon, the chefs here craft traditional dishes along with a few of their own creations. Baja-style fish tacos and chicken enchiladas topped with mole poblano sauce showcase Mexico's more traditional flavors, but the menu also features some wildly creative dishes, such as a Hawaiian-inspired torta with grilled ham, pineapple, and jalape?os. The bar hardly plays second fiddle, with more than 190 varieties of tequila, including a number of amber-hued a?ejos that stay in their cocoons for at least three years before bursting free. The dining area shares the rustic, casual spirit of the restaurant's menu. Weathered stone tiles line the floors, complementing the warm tones of the red-brick walls. The space also features a handful of modern touches, such as a flat-screen television and overhead track lighting.

Much like the concoctions they?re named for, the story behind The Cupcake Shoppe is short but sweet. In 2011, Yolanda Diaz and her daughter Rosie started an online bakery. Within months, their treats became so popular that they had to invest in a full-sized confection facility. Since then, the Cupcake Shoppe has expanded their menu to include traditional, liquor-infused, and specialty cupcakes, including a french-toast-and-bacon version that nabbed top honors at the 2012 San Francisco Cupcake Challenge. Yolanda and Rosie?s other cakes stretch the size spectrum, from cake pops and mini cupcakes to full-size custom cakes decorated for holidays and special occasions. The ladies also craft caramel apples and cookies that, like most thermometers, work best when dipped in chocolate. Their treats have even attracted some celebrity crushes: comedian George Lopez and 49ers running back Frank Gore have been spotted in the shop, and the cupcakes were also featured in the gift bags at the 2012 Daytime Emmy Awards. The Cupcake Shoppe was also featured in the 2013 edition of Cupcake Wars.
