Eudemonia 2154 University Ave., Berkeley, 510-883-0814 Eudemonia.net
Slightly older children, including 35-year-olds who refuse to grow up, can be found frequenting this gamers' paradise. If you're looking for acres upon acres of computers, Xboxes, and PS2s in your cybercafe, perhaps you should head out to the Next Level in Pleasant Hill. But if you think atmosphere and a good crowd of regulars are what makes a cybercafe good, then Eudemonia will win your heart. It's a Magic: the Gathering haven, a table-top gaming mecca, and also an excellent place to play Counter-Strike, Warcraft III, and Unreal Tournament. While there are only some twenty-odd PCs here, there's a steady stream of players and hucksters flowing into this nerdarium near the Cal campus. Stop in on Friday night to join in the Magic tournaments, or just troll all night on the in-house T-1. It's the most happening gamer scene in the Bay Area.
