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.
