Best Wi-Fi Free Cafe 

Black Spring Coffee Company

Everything about Black Spring is low-key and understated. Owned by Ryan Stark, a musician and former Virgil of the Amoeba Music aisles in Berkeley, Black Spring is awash in natural light, lined with modest, spacious tables and revolving artwork, and anchored by a J-shaped counter. (The boldest feature, an espresso machine mounted on hydraulics, is necessary to accommodate Stark's stature.) Also, Black Spring offers delicious vegan pastries, withholds wi-fi, and is named after a Henry Miller book. Crucially, there are no signs stating any of these facts. Black Spring shows that it's more about being than being seen.

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
