“A space so stylish it received a mention in Architectural Digest, the coffee, drinks, and menu at this small cafe are out of this world. The pastries are provided by Butter Block, an absolutely unmatched local pop up that has been making its mark in the city. Watch out trying one of their delicious chocolate croissants- they're so good you'll be ruined for any others forever.”
