Until public-transit officials make our dream of commuting to work by rollycoaster a reality, we'll have to settle for the adrenaline rush of traditional pick-me-ups.

The Sparrows Coffee Tea & Newsstand is stocked with an impressive array of brewables, steepables, and munchables. The cozy beverage boutique serves up more than 30 loose-leaf teas by the classic cup ($2.50) for calming down even the most stressed-out Depression-era baseball players. Iced green and black teas ($1.90) are also available to cool customers down on hot summer days. A bevy of fair-trade bean-juice options will perk up the thirsty without causing moral jitters. Throw back a shot of espresso ($1.90) for a no-frills energy punch, or flirt with the foam atop a decadent mocha ($3.75) during a relaxed rendezvous at the café. Bottomless house coffee ($3.50) is available for the supersleepy or those who've been boycotting cup bottoms ever since they started supporting big-box retail chains. If you crave creativity, opt for a customizable bubble tea ($3.75–$4.25) and let the tapioca beads act as a delightfully textured muse.

A vibrant candy-apple façade and forest-green awnings call customers to flit into Sparrows' cozy interior. Filled with warm overhead light and an abundance of wooden tables and chairs, the café-cum-newsstand sets the stage for friendly gatherings while ensuring your company won't likely be mixed with cold-blooded reptilians from the Mariana Trench. Take advantage of the café's free WiFi by arranging a coffee date with a far-flung friend over video chat, or ogle other homo sapiens in real time from an outdoor café table that's just right for people watching.
