Even though they cheekily dub their beverages Fancy Schmancy coffees, the baristas at Heather's Coffee and Caf? are serious about brewing flavorful java. To showcase their four drip styles, they concoct drinks such as the Dirty Chai, a blend of espresso and chai tea, and the Smore's, which mixes espresso and steamed milk with the three ingredients of the classic campfire snack.
The pours complement the cuisine of the caf?'s chefs, who begin every morning by filling tortillas with scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, and a choice of bacon and ham. By lunchtime, the chefs' focus turns to salads, sandwiches, and pizzas, including the Yummo, a medley of garlic pesto, shredded chicken, and corn-and-black-bean relish. Meals unfold Monday?Friday; on Saturday and Sunday, the caf? closes for private events and baristas-only coffee-ground fights.
