Misha's Coffee Roaster Coffeehouse

$$$$ ($14 and under)

Editorial Review

Coffee drunk within Misha's art-laden blue and yellow walls just seems to taste better than other coffee. Maybe it's the beatnik atmosphere, maybe it's the fact that the coffee alone is worth a visit. The beans are roasted on the premises, and there are special blends with names like Route 66 and Earl's Private Stock. To go with all that caffeine, there's chocolate and carrot cake, apple turnovers, rich chocolate brownies and chunky chocolate chip cookies. But food and drink aren't the reason this place is always crowded - it's the scene that's the real draw. If you're in the mood to people-watch, this is a great place to indulge. You may prefer to find a corner and pull out your journal or join the group of cigarette smokers at the large table in the back. The acoustics here are such that the eavesdropping is easy - which, depending on your point of view, can be either a good or a bad thing.
