Go ahead, spread your books all over the table and pull out your highlighters. Study for five hours, maybe even six. You won't get any dirty looks from the staff at Borders Cafe Espresso. Even if you don't buy anything, they'll let you be. The cafe is quiet, so you can read and concentrate, but not so quiet that you feel like you can't have a conversation. Coffee is just a few steps away, and the seats are solid and comfortable -- not those Euro-wire thingies that make you want to move on in twenty minutes because your butt hurts so bad. When you get hungry, the Emeryville food court is right next door, and you can bring the munchies back to your table at the cafe. Heck, there's even a bathroom. Why not set up camp for a week?
