In Sacramento, coffeehouse galleries offer art with strudel.

With this month's usual cool or rainy weather, you might want to duck into one of Sacramento's cafe-galleries to sip a hot, freshly brewed cappuccino while sitting next to a sunny landscape--or a show of valentine art--a combination sure to stimulate conversation.

The cafes listed all serve a variety of coffees and teas, pastries and other desserts; some serve entrees as well. But you don't have to be a customer to enjoy the gallery display.

The paintings, photographs, or sculptures by regional artists are usually changed once a month, with most pieces offered for sale. (On our last visit, prices started at $50, ranging all the way up to an occasional $2,000.)
