Best coffee in town! Well, it's hard to compete, but it's dang good. We frequent this place very often. It's hard not to since it's only two blocks away. Great monthly art installations.

Awesome brunch. Expect to put your name on a waitlist and come back half an hour (or more) later on the weekends. Totally worth it! We recommend strolling Mississippi while you wait.

I thought I had experienced the best ice cream, until I had a cone at Fifty Licks this summer. I can't even describe how amazing it is. I gotta say, I prefer this over Salt n' Straw.
