Fresno - local coffee
Two of the best I've found are Iron Bird cafe (Fulton at Divisadero) and Cafe Corazon (Wishon, just north of the Tower theater.)
Iron Bird is a full service cafe with breakfast as well as lunch offerings and a cool vibe. Espresso is done well.
Cafe Corzaon is for the purists. No food (but you can go to the bakery next door.) Coffee brewed for you right there - no stainless steel containers but no espresso machine either. Corazon roasts their own beans and is a no frills operation BUT their coffee is really good.
Check them out - and let me know which you prefer.
