  Coffee Cartel
by ymike2000

Every city's got this type of place, and I'm so glad! It's an offbeat coffee shop with some pastries and desserts.

The Coffee Cartel has ice cream too. So there's action first thing in the morning for the coffee, then again late at night for the ice cream as the area restaurants are closing.

And the rest of the day a handful of people sit around on couches, nursing their cups of coffee or tea, reading (there's lots of used newspapers around) and listening to the indie-rock on the stereo. Such a blissful existance. I love it!

There's a seperate room for smokers, as well as over 20 tables outside.

Open 24 hours.

Favorite Dish: To drink there's coffee, tea, smoothies, lattes, cappucinos, etc.

To eat there's bagels, pastries, biscotti, etc. They serve Edy's ice cream.
