Reader: Does Tennyson Really Need Another Hipster Magnet?

Allegro Coffee is expanding from roasting to serving. The company's beans are already available at Whole Foods, as well as at a small shop in the Adams 12 administration building in its home base of Thornton. And next month, Allegro will open a stand-alone coffee shop in a a 4,000 square-foot space that had been a former hardware store on Tennyson treet in the hot Berkeley area. Says Michael: 

I was just thinking that neighborhood needed another hipster magnet.

Adds CR:

We need this, why? Tennyson already has two coffee shops.

What do you think of the developments on Tennyson Street? What's your go-to coffee spot?
