Just across the street, a "Boutique Hotel" opened, very fash­ion­able, very neighborhood-integrated. It has a cof­fee bar - one of about 5 with­in 2 blocks of the of­fice. The cof­fee bar is funky, with mir­rors and brass rails and Paris-café-style ta­bles and chairs.

But the cof­fee at the Star­bucks across the road is bet­ter. Where, in gen­er­al, you go for the best cof­fee is an­oth­er as­pect of truth that it's hard to write down rules for.
