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.
