When they’re not blending imported leaves into 120 tea varieties, the tea gurus at Tea Time lead tasting classes that empower sippers to explore the 3,000-year-old beverage’s origins, aromas, and health benefits. The classes reflect Tea Time’s mission to make its tea room a welcoming community hub. In the shop’s “sniffing corner,” staff members help customers sift through 150 glass jars of tealeaves in search of their ideal blend. Free WiFi, bamboo tables, and a menu of French-style pastries and English-style sandwiches furnish tranquil afternoons, and a slew of teatime accessories line solid oak shelves.

Kettlepop's commitment to quality ingredients and old-fashioned preparation make its product highly distinctive. Each Kettlepop kernel gets equal treatment in a patented, fire-burning kettle of their own design, and small batches ensure that every bag is fresh and evenly cooked. Sample a classic with a large bag of kettle corn ($8.95), their most popular concoction. Medium-sized appetites meet their matches with medium bags of cheese ($6.95) and caramel ($8.95) flavors. A small bag of chocolate drizzles ($6.95), kettle corn covered in dark and white chocolate, combines sweet and salty in a union as unexpected yet satisfying as popping bubble wrap in the bathtub. Tins of this versatile treat also make great gifts: a 3.5 gallon gift tin with a three-flavor combo shows popcorn-loving friends and enemies with braces exactly how you feel.

Named in honor of the women in owner Paulo Acosta Cabezas’s life, Mamá Art Cafe creates a local hub for the output of creative energy and the intake of savory snacks. Mamá's baristas brew a lineup of specialty fair-trade organic coffees, with beans culled from Berkeley Coffee and Tea and served up hot and fresh from an array of roasts, flavors, and magic-beanstalk origins. The intimate café setting boasts an interior adorned with local and international artwork—with past art exhibitions showcasing Marta Ayala's paintings and Charles Anselmo's photographs—and the cafe regularly entertains with creative performances, such as dinner tango routines and live jazz music. Mamá Art Cafe's tireless effort to give back to the community earned the eatery a shout-out from then-Mayor Gavin Newsom with a 2010 Latino Heritage Award for Achievement in Business, as well as honors at the 2011 Annual Hispanic Business Salute.
