Reviews for Coffee Conscious

This stretch of Gilman Street in deeply residential North Berkeley is so low-key and unassuming that I have to admit I forget the neighborhood is there to enjoy on a quiet Sunday morning. Jamie W. and I took a detour from our stroll on Solano and found ourselves here by accident. We decided to stop here and was taken by its communal vibe and the vegan doughnuts they get from Pepples, especially the chocolate one with shredded coconut. Coffee was a secondary consideration, full review
If someone wanted to know what Berkeley coffee culture is like, I'd take them to Coffee Conscious. From the vegan & locally made pastries, to the garage-sale style decor, to the quirky owner who invents menu items on his own whim (his most recent "concoction" was the ghost pepper mocha, originally supposed to be a special for Halloween, but stayed on the menu) - Coffee Conscious is like Berkeley's Philz Coffee with an Urban Ore atmosphere.

I stopped by here on Christmas Eve because I was in desperate need for some caffeine. I was very grateful that it was open, but even more so to be greeted by friendly staff. Even though they were about to close, they made one of the best lattes I have ever had! They have some special lattes that are very unique and so soothing. If this place was closer to me, I would come here all the time!
