Cafe Crema

Cafe Crema isn’t exactly next door to WWDC but its fairly close and some people might be staying near that part of town for WWDC. It has really good coffee and breakfasts that don’t come in a box and sit waiting for several hours at the conference center!

And after some coffee and breakfast, it’s an easy 25 minutes walk to the convention center.

If coming from the direction of the Whole Foods, the first thing you will notice is the mural,

It is fairly close to the Whole Foods and the CalTrain direction (unfortunately in the wrong side of the station for myself) but it does has lots of parking in the back. Plus generous number of tables and spaces to seat inside.

The first sip of coffee in the day is always the best

But the same can’t be said of the first post!

Welcome to, where I will try to help your visit to San Jose for WWDC (or for any other reason) to be more enjoyable – well, IF you:

– like coffee

– like wine 

– like vegetarian food

And you might be also interested in things like… macOS and iOS development (AppKit lives!)

I would also like to thank  – and encourage you to join – Live Near WWDC to help App Camp for Girls  because I obviously copied the name idea from them,  and also because it’s a really great experience and a great cause.
