This is way overdue.
As you can see by my entries I’m a bit addicted to coffee.
So, I have a self-appointed quest to visit the various coffee houses that are popping all around town.
The rules of engagement are quite simple: 1) Try all the local flavors, 2) Try to avoid the big chains (with a few exceptions, but that is a post for later) and finally 3) Try at least two different coffee drinks.
With that in mind, I went scouting for my first place to sit down, enjoy some great coffee and take this time to catch-up with some of my reading.
The first place, and honestly one of my go-to places, is Café Único.
This particular visit was on a rare rainy day in my fair city, so I desperately needed to chase away the chill of a winter wet day.
The place was comfy and with a great feeling of warmth, with a few people enjoyed a good chat but not overcrowded.
The coffee was perfect, strong, bold and to the perfect temperature and accompanied by a warm apple strudel, well, it was the perfect combination to warm up and read for a couple of hours.
The baristas are really friendly and attentive but do not snotter you.
This is one of the main reasons I keep coming back, great coffee and a peaceful place to unwind for a couple of hours.
You can follow Café Único on Facebook to see their location and business hours.
Drink of Choice: Americano
Dessert of Choice: Warm Apple Strudel
Best Hour (for my taste): between 10:00 a.m and 12:00 p.m.
