Welcome back to the feature where we highlight our staff’s favorite places to explore in the neighborhood we know and love! With so many wonderful options nearby, we’re once again focusing on our favorite spots to grab a cup of coffee or tea. (See the first coffee shop roundup post here.)
Stop by Le Café Coffee for doughnuts from Dough, which our staff members declare to be the most delicious doughnuts around! Also give their lavender lattes and freshly made sandwiches a try. This small café has a few seats at the counter, with free Wi-Fi, but no restroom or outlets available.

Everyman Espresso is tucked away in the lobby of the Classic Stage Company, with an open seating area and large windows letting in lots of natural light. The café carries doughnuts from Doughnut Plant, and was voted the best coffee shop in the nation by The Daily Meal! Note that Wi-Fi, bathrooms and some wall outlets are available.
