One mark of a truly excellent coffee shop is the availability of The Onion and The Wall Street Journal.
|Among the many fun and funky signs and flyers and whatnots around the shop - another important coffee shop distinction.|
|You must also serve delicious, creamy espresso - 9/10.|
And you have to sell an interesting and lip-smacking assortment of baked goods:
|Currant Caraway Scone - $3|
Caraway and I had a love affair a while back, and she's one of those lovers I'm hardly ever able to resist any time I run into her. They toasted it for me and it was perfect. It was so dense and moist and wonderful.
|Oh oh oh.|
|My date got a plain croissant, which was good though by no means among the best croissants I've had.|
|I'm really curious to know how good that vegan pb brownie is.|
|The reason that tipped me over into thinking this is my favorite coffee shop - I fell hard in love with Bolo Levado (those soft, sweet, Portuguese rolls). This place has glazed Portuguese Popovers! Whaaaat?! Next time, next time. Soon.|
Guess what? Next time came!
|Portuguese popover, and I guess the Portuguese part means it's glazed. It'd be so good hot, but it still has that French toasty eggy taste that's so great, and it's wonderful with espresso!|
Now the next time I go I want to try their special coffee maker that allows you to try one fresh cup of their 43 or so coffees.
