This is a coffee lover's delight. It looks at first like a fashionable chemistry lab but no... the nectar of the gods awaits!
Coffee is made from Japanese technology, like heat lamps and vacuum tubes, in this open, airy, and modern cafe.
They get new beans on tuesdays and thursdays and I recommend you go on those days to pick up fantastic whole bean espressos as gifts. I also picked up a fantastic hand grinder for coffee beans that my husband adores.
The whole bean selection was impressive, and both my siphon coffee and french toast were delicious. I would recommend going at an off-peak hour as I had to wait quite a while to order and be served.
