Good coffee! They have all kinds of coffee, made in a good barista manner. The food (and scones) are delicious and the outdoor seating is nice. The staff is friendly and the overall service very good. They do take out as well.

We rode our bikes over to Alta. It's a little cafe that has been in business for 30 years. We had breakfast here and ordered a scramble and bueno bowl. The pastries are good. Sometimes there is a line. Good priced.
