Coffee Shop Chronicles: Inklings Coffee & Tea
Inklings Coffee & Tea is a bibliophile's dream. Located on Pleasanton's Main Street, Inklings serves fine coffee, teas and pastries in a cozy library-like setting. Sip a little Stumptown under over-sized portraits of Lewis and Tolkein or plop down with a lavender latte in the back room's window reading nook. The menu offers everything from a classic house blend ($2.85*) to nitro chai tea ($5.00). New on tap is the crisp blood orange kombucha ($5.25 for a small), and be sure not to miss out on the oat and date scones.
If you can work remotely, consider making Inklings your part-time office. Great coffee, great pastries and shelves of western literature's greatest works for inspiration. What else do you need?
