It took 10 years for Sajee Barabash to find the ideal location for the coffee shop of her dreams. Now that she's found it, she strives to foster a community atmosphere at Cafe Ninety 7, first and foremost by pouring a great cup of coffee that keeps customers coming back. Espresso drinks are crafted with organic fair-trade coffees and make a refreshing accompaniment to any of the housemade soups and sandwiches on the menu. Some diners might want to skip their breakfast or lunch and go straight to dessert, choosing from a spread of treats made fresh each day by a local baker, not dropped off by the pastry stork. The café itself is modern yet cozy, with leather high-backed chairs and a scattering of bright paintings and live plants.
