Step into Hippies Brew, and you're instantly transported to a surfer/skater haven that makes you wonder, "Is this Hayward?" With surfboards and skateboard decks lining the walls, a colorful mural, and cushy red vinyl bar stools, this is easily the hippest coffee shop in the city. While the drip coffee and breakfast pastries (bagel and French toast sandwiches, muffins, and scones) are great, the special homemade mint drip concoction is the coffee shop's biggest draw. This icy cold coffee drink comes with real sprigs of mint and is the perfect blend of sweetness, mintiness, and caffeine. It's like no other coffee drink, and so good you'll need another fix.
