    Forget Starbucks and go local. This place is the best mainline cafe.

    After only three consecutive visits, I was a regular. I walked in the door and the barista smiled at me and rattled off my order. That was a great feeling.

    If you go for coffee and forgot to bring cash, get the chocolate croissant to help you get over the $5 credit card minimum. You won't be sorry.

    If I opened my own coffee shop, it would probably be a lot like Milkboy. Live music, art for sale on the walls, good food & drink, free wifi, and the staff are friendly. Who does all that anymore?
