I'd go here all the time if it were cheaper, but this sunny cafe is tucked into the hipster fold of Blagden Alley so you're going to pay for your latte!

Good coffee, served in porcelain. Some sweet snacks to choose from (chocolate croissant, chocolate chip cookie, ...). Friendly people. I was there on a sunny autumn day in the morning. Had my coffee outside, no wind, sun on my face. Excellent.

This is a very cute coffee shop with attentive and knowledgeable baristas, and I had one of the smoothest/best cups of coffee I've ever had. No real breakfast food, but coffee is spot on.
