This local hangout could just as easily fall in the bar category, though coffee connoisseurs should make a pilgrimage here during the day. Sip freshly ground roasts from Counter Culture Coffee in the tranquil courtyard, accompanied by hefty croissants, sandwiches, quiche, and pastries. It’s a cozy place that morphs into a beer-aficionado paradise in the evenings, with a menu of 22 quality craft brews on tap (from $5) and several bottled ciders (the alcoholic kind). The only downer: no Wi-Fi.
