La Colombe revolutionized coffee with their canned draft lattes- the first of its kind. However their specialty coffee is just as delicious and with spots all over the city, it’s a great option for a morning pick-me-up.

Their extensive menu is as impressive as their actual store front. With a huge patio, you have plenty of space to work or meet friends for a quick coffee. We love the unique atmosphere- particularly for a coffee shop.

This high-end coffee bar chain serves daily roasted brews in an industrial-chic setting. Not to mention the staff is always beyond helpful, making each experience special. Marissa, a tea drinker, loves their Turmeric Tonic- so she gets the best of both worlds.
