Dr. Insomnia's Coffee & Teas, Novato report w/ pics

Driving back home from Healdsburg on 101 was hell because of the afternoon blahs..heavy food & some wine = sleepy driver.

I got all the way to Novato and got off the fwy. I don't know much about downtown Novato but we parked and just walked around and found Dr. Insomnia's Coffee & Teas. Just what we needed.

We got:
Regular small coffee latte
& small Almond Latte

Total was $5.95! It was tasty enough and kept me awake enough to drive home which is all I cared about.

They have scones & other pastries..some they bake in house, others not..what's a scuffin?..they have it. A backroom w/ a mural I wanted to see but didn't. Some tables & stools available. A nice tiny nook a lady was sitting in was neat, looked comfy.

      My hubby drank the regular small coffee latte and still was able to fall asleep in the car while I was driving.

    2. Scuffin is their "invention": part scone, part muffin.
