    Local startup Cowork Cafe planted itself inside the Clarendon cafe last year, where remote workers get perks for $150 a month: wifi, of course, plus office amenities, $50 in food credits and more. Read more

    I die for the combination of a spinach empanada, hot moroccan mint tea, and a scoop of fruity gelato! The atmosphere is so eclectic and cozy. I've huddled up in their armchairs on snow days :)

    Terrific gelato. Try the salted caramel, pineapple basil, Chilean peach, or coconut. Better deal to get two scoops and split with a friend, even if you only want one scoop.

    I frequent here and have to say espresso affogato with biscotti (Righthand) melts in my mouth like no other! Also like the mojito or stracciatella gelato here

    Minty oreo latte is the best coffee thing I have ever had! You must try gelatos - will never find anything like this in the world!

    Coffee here is great! Why go to Northside Social and fight for a table, when you can relax in the lovely "living room" atmosphere here?

    Small seating area but it's really cozy. They sell (and brew?) Stumptown coffee and have flat whites / cortados on the menu!

    They accept check cards now. They swipe it through an iPad. There is an ATM in the store if you'd like to use cash.

    Gelato great! Coffee inconsistent depends on Barista. Service is great. Keep clear of the Manager/owner he seems to be upset most evenings.

    Ok, you are wrong if you've not had the affogato with a suitable gelato. (think almond, chocolate, vanilla)

    The salted caramel is HEAVY on the salt. Wouldn't recommend it unless you have a taste for salty hot milk.
