One of the largest locally owned gourmet coffee and tea shops in the U.S., Barnie's offers more than 50 different gourmet coffees with 15 delectable flavors. Barnie's typically brews four different fresh coffees each day, and a ballroom of smoothies and lattes waltzes alongside mochas, espressos, and cappuccinos. Sit and sip a freshly brewed cup ($1.59+) or begin hoarding bags of pre-ground or whole-bean specialties such as Santa's White Christmas ($9.49/12 oz.)—a combination of Barnie's blended coffee with hints of coconut, sweet caramel, and vanilla guaranteed to keep you alert during the season when homes are most vulnerable to invasion by diabolically generous bearded elves. Recently unfrozen British cavemen can warm up with signature teas such as organic raspberry truffle and white-ginger peach, while all others can hose down tongue gardens with summer specials such as the Barnie Palmer ($2.29–$2.59), a blend of strawberry iced tea and mango lemonade.
Though the lessons that artist Laura Bird Miller leads at Coffee and Canvas are deeply informative—classes range from oils and watercolors to 3D media such as clay—their main focus is fun. In classes for children and adults, students sip on coffee drinks, hot cocoa, and lemonade and savor a selection of cupcakes as they learn basic and advanced artistic techniques. The center's workshops are even more easygoing, as themed sessions for best friends, romantic partners, or just for fun help guests put their own creative touches on a pre-drawn image.

The vibe at Sleeping Moon Cafe suits many personalities as it transitions from a quiet, low-key café to a venue where local musicians can share their tunes. During the sunshiny hours of the day, the dining room serves as the perfect spot to get work done. Guests can sip on Italian sodas or Americanos as they study, or balance typing with eating vegan burgers or ham-and-apple paninis. As the day goes on, guests begin to socialize more. Friends talk as they share appetizers such as the stuffed grape leaves or slices of gala apples served with Nutella. But as the first band of the evening begins to play, the mood shifts to a more mellow tone. Musicians strumming guitars, artwork hanging on the walls, and dim lighting create the ideal backdrop for dates, or hiding the fact that you're wearing the same fruit hat as someone else.
