At Travel Mug Cafe, rustic hardwood floors support plush leather furniture and bright-red beams and assorted lamps illuminate maps and art from around the world on earth-toned walls. Amid this warm atmosphere, trained baristas tend to handcrafted espresso and pour-over brews, including local favorite Black Pearl coffee. They also steep more than 40 loose-leaf teas, which are available for purchase by the gram. Patrons pair their sips with freshly made pastries such as cheesecake, cannoli, and imperial cookies while listening to soft music or watching picture settings on the flat screen.
