Home of the "worlds best" Irish coffee. I would recommend trying to stop by in the middle of the afternoon to help avoid long lines. You can also take them to go

There is really only one good reason to visit- iconic Irish coffees. They cornered the market on the perfect glasses for their coffee drinks. We visited on a Thursday night and actually got a seat at the bar. Weekends are packed to the gills.

Sunday Brunch started with a wonderful Irish Coffee. We had a combination of breakfast, lunch and dinner. They were able to accommodate us without blinking an eye. The atmosphere is warm and friendly (like you'd been going there for years). Food was delicious. I understand...More
