Readers' Pick: An absolute Tucson institution, Bentley's was serving great coffee back when Starbuck was just the name of a pioneer whaling family on Nantucket Island. (Yeah, we read In the Heart of the Sea.) Who knows how much homework has been written and graded there? Who knows how much caffeine has been consumed over the years? And how many really bad novels have been hatched in the relaxing atmosphere of Bentley's? Sure to ride out of the storm of imitators and infidels, Bentley's is the real deal.
Readers' Poll Runner-up: Raging Sage, 2458 N. Campbell Ave. 320-5203
