    the fun isn't in guessing what's on the menu, rather in sipping the wonderfully balanced, insanely rich taste of your cup's content. come back to black and guaranteed, never turn back.

    Cozy small coffee spot with homemade pastries. The problem are people who are sitting here for hours with their laptops, so the only way to enjoy your coffee from Back to Black is to take it away.
