Decorated with wooden frames, glass tile backsplash and the warm colors of the shop, Bitter + Sweet has a cozy feeling where customers can find a quiet place to study or a relaxing area to chat with friends, family or colleagues over a cup of coffee and a warm pastry. The coffee shop opened in 2011, but in 2017, ownership was taken over by a current employee, putting his own twist into the space and the menu. Customers can grab a sandwich or pastry to pair perfectly with one of their traditional coffees or new flavors such as white chocolate matcha latte and a red velvet latte. 20560 Town Center Ln., Cupertino
