A warm, passionate band of locals staffs the comfy communal environs at both Muddy Waters Coffee Bar locations, each dedicated to serving tasty, Counter Culture Coffee-approved fair-trade coffees. A host of flavorful, creative bean-bound beverages adorns the menu like so many gilded ribbons on a break-dancer's pantaloons. Swathe a chilly tongue in a hot coverlet of hand-quilted espressos such as the latte ($2.80–$3.65) or muddy mocha ($3.35–$4.20), or impress an island hotelier with all-inclusive blended drinks such as the caramel frappe ($4.20¬–$4.60). The coffee bar's iced coffee ($2.25–$2.60) pairs well with its myriad pastries, which arrive from local vendors like Sticky Bakery, Nicole's Nutty Goodness, and Grawnola. A cozy, welcoming environment fills both locations, underscored by uncannily warm, helpful baristas and frequent, community-focused in-house events.
