From Our Editors

Against a backdrop of music and aromatic wafts of roasted coffee beans, Cafe Ballou's baristas serve a menu's worth of steamy mugs of fresh coffee and tea. The café's edibles and drinks are locally sourced, including coffee from Intelligentsia, custom-blended Tiesta teas, and a selection of baked goods provided by JR Dessert Bakery. Below the lofty, painted tin ceiling and low-hanging amber lights, sofas and wooden chairs offer cozy spots to surf the free WiFi, take in the collection of local artwork on the walls, or practice astral projection. The inviting space also hosts a calendar artistic events, including live music, poetry readings, and open-mic nights.
