This is a local spot full of students and near Diridon train station. Snacks, coffees, sodas, and gelato all served. Can get busy on weekends and hard to find a spot to sit.

My favorite thing about Crema is its customers. The neighborhood represents of diversity of cultures and demographics. It's a great place be around people while working on your computer, or a central place to meet with friends or colleagues. It's also a nice spot to meet prior to or following dinner. The coffees, teas, and baked goods are fresh and... More

Charmingly atmospheric, and serves more than just espresso drinks. Their tea and iced beverages are delicious too. A popular neighborhood hangout.

We met here for our book-club discussion and the coffee was very good, the bagels were a solid good, and the environment is classic espresso shop with a funky collection of chairs, tables; students, Sunday-paper readers; overall a nice shop. The staff was okay, nice enough, but didn't have very good customer interaction skills and the communication among the staff... More

Coffee and gelato were great, but it was pretty mobbed with people working on their computers. The servers were very friendly about letting us try lots of flavors of gelato--the coffee gelato was especially good.

Another of the many coffee houses in San Jose. This one puts art up on the wall showcasing different artists. They do their own roasting.

Great local coffee shop. My go to drink is a blended coconut coffee drink. The taste of the drink reminded me of a coffee drink I had in Hawaii. Great location and reasonable $ worth getting your drink than Starbucks

Great: independent business, beautiful garden patio, lots of seating inside, cheerful customers (including dogs outside) Poor: flavorless espresso, mocha more like hot chocolate, garden patio full of trash, disorganized and surly staff My friends love this place. I just don't get it. I wouldn't go there on my own.

Great little coffee house. Stopped in for tea, ended up with some very good gelato. Staff was very patient and helpful, letting us sample a few when we couldn't decide on flavor. Their baked goods looked appetizing as well. They have outside seating out front, which was very pleasant.

Thank WA147
