    try a single-origin espresso. they do a pretty good job of wrangling them here, and that's no easy task.

    more random tips: the peanut butter cookies are delicious and wheat-free. enjoy the outdoor patio on a nice day, especially when the neighborhood kitty visits. they also sell hario brewing equipment.

    Don't show up with a book without headphones or a lot of focus. The click-clacking of keyboards makes it a little tough. And it's always going on. Coffee is good, though.

    Mumbai chai is divine. The salty goat is delish. The Internet is free but bring a power strip.

    Bring cash. $10 minimum is steep (and I've been stuck w it three weeks running). The pastry from Brittany is ridiculously good.

    The latte here saddles the line between second (dark) and third (green) wave coffee better than anything. Pretty much perfect. Perfect. Perfect.

    Love the lattes and hot chocolate. The butternut squash soup and the salty goat sandwich are delish--but the food is expensive. If you come with your computer, be prepared: there are only 6 outlets.
