World of Coffee and Tea
Hot. Cold. At World of Coffee and Tea, these polar opposites exist in perfect harmony, filling out either side of the menu with more than a dozen different concoctions each. On the hot side, potable doses of energy come in the form of coffee and steamy espresso drinks such as chai lattes and apple cider. Likewise, chilled elixirs include everything from iced tea and frappuccinos to fruit smoothies. Homemade muffins, pastries, and sandwiches complement the drinks, and visitors can retreat to a cozy lounge area with a newspaper to read the day's wacky anagrams from the president.
