Workable Coffee Houses
To help jog fading memory for return trips, a list of atmospheric coffee houses, with free wifi.
Bibo Coffee House,
nice local-neighborhood coffee shop, s.w. of downtown Reno on Mt Rose St.
- (unfortunately, no wifi, although the downtown Liberty St. Bibo outlet does have it,
in addition to a horrid location in a bank lobby, blasted by the afternoon sun, double-ugh).
Jackson Food Stores, around Reno
- quick-stop gas stations, not coffee houses, but they sell a nice cup of Mocha-Cappucino for just $1.39,
brewed in 15-sec in one of those european-style automatic brewing machines.
Dreamer's Coffeehouse & Deli, next to the river on Virginia St, Reno.
Coffee Bean & Tea House, Las Vegas several locations, all pleasant.
Rejavanate, Las Vegas east side.
Sam Wellers Books and Coffee, Salt Lake City downtown.
Fire Tower Coffee House, Helena downtown
Morning Light Coffee Roasters,
Trident Booksellers & Cafe, Boulder downtown
- best coffeehouse this side of Paris and Vienna.
every public library in every city+town visited in the western US so far had free 54-Mbps wifi,
except for Vegas, which still had slow 11-Mbps wifi up until May 2009
(speed upgraded now, but keeps throwing you off every 10-15 min).
unfortunately, as of July 2009, Reno public libraries still have 11-Mbps wifi.
high-speed wifi: Boulder, Ft.Collins, Casper, Billings, Livingston, Bozeman, Helena,
Vegas (when the routers aren't crashing).
slow wifi: Reno.
