excellent vegetarian food (fresh & local)
Posted on 12 / 03 / 2008
I stopped @ ARTspace & Coffeehouse (a.k.a. MYM, for Make Your Mark) B4 I took my dog to the vet next door just to grab some coffee and was simply blown away. I never been inside but several of my friend go there regularly for coffee or lunch, and they all recommended the place. I ordered an Americano (they make it "dirty", which is the ONLY way to drink it) and a slice of their coffee cake not expecting anything at all...the dirty Americano was probably the BEST I ever had and that cake was so tasty. I got a magazine (they have a rack full of them) and spent about 30 minutes, while looking around admiring the place. The place was packed with customers but very clean (including their bathroom) and totally cool looking...you can even do some art and leave it on their magnetic board, which I did. They have FREE wireless (didn't have my laptop) and a guy sitting next to me told me that they just upgraded to FiOS. I took my dog to the vet and actually came back for lunch. The menu is completely vegetarian and their DAILY MENU is so diverse and I had a real hard time selecting something. I got their soup & a Panini, which were absolutely delicious and then finished w/ a fantastic forbidden-fruit smoothie.
I highly recommend this amazing cafe for their huge beverage selection (all of their coffees & tea are fair-trade & organic), the excellent quality, and the amazing food. The place has a lovely look & feel and the barista was so friendly (which they NEVER are in most coffeehouses).
So go there soon...you will not regret it at all (I am probably going to be there when you come in because I am addicted to this place now)
BTW, they also have French Presses for patrons to use. You pick the size, they the bean and they grind it for you right then & there, so it's so fresh. I think La Prima is their roaster...I am coming back for French Press coffee after Thanksgiving...cannot wait!
