Hot Topic: Your Morning Wake-Up

Readers of TravelandLeisure.com’s “America’s Best Coffee Cities” (Online, March) made one thing clear: where good java is concerned, strong opinions are brewing.

Georgia on My Mind

Savannah made the list but not Atlanta? I can’t name two decent shops in Savannah. Atlanta has more than 10! —TravelandLeisure.com member jdominy

“Disloyalty” Perks

Seattle still ranks number one. Now the city even offers “disloyalty” punch cards distributed by local shops. Once you’ve checked out all the shops listed on the card you get a free cup of coffee at the shop of your choice. —Lusso Bags, via Facebook

Windy City Roasters

Chicago is the home of Intelligentsia, Metropolis, and a dozen other coffee roasters and you only mention Starbucks? —TravelandLeisure.com member Jessmean

Reader’s Find: Innsbruck High Point

My husband and I travel around the world on business and have had many fine meals all over Europe. Our favorite restaurant is Wirtshaus Schöneck, in Innsbruck, Austria (6 Weiherburggasse; 43-512/272-728; $115 per person for five courses), a small, elegant place nestled in the heart of the Alps. Alfred Miller, the owner, makes sure your dining experience is one of a kind, and dishes such as elk and their famous Wiener schnitzel are presented in a beautiful and mouthwatering way alongside fresh, local vegetables. To top it off, the intimate dining room offers magnificent views of the Alps and the green river below. —Wendy and Fran Powell, Cheshire, Conn.

I make sure that I have my travel journal with me. I usually leave a blank page after each entry so I can paste in a picture when I get home. —Cassie Mcmillion, Naples, Fla.

Don’t leave home without Ziploc bags! I have a little obsession with these plastic lifesavers. There’s really no better invention. —Tracy Jackson Chaney, Los Angeles, Calif.

My iPhone with all my travel apps and its handy GPS. I’d be lost without it. —Denise Lao, Stamford, Conn.

A little yellow duck named Humphrey. I’ve been traveling with him since 1997. —Katy Keene Metell, Philadelphia, Pa.
