Despite our name, Project Latte, we’re not all about milky espresso drinks.
We love the cafe experience and are interested in helping people discover the best coffee shops, whether they’re looking for a place to hunker down and work, a spot with a nice backyard, somewhere to talk with friends, or some other criteria entirely.
Great coffee or tea and quality savory or sweet food are all an important part of the cafe experience for us, but sometimes venues whose coffee doesn’t make the grade will make it into our Bear Recommended list for other reasons, including for example, stellar vegan doughnuts combined with great design and free wifi.
We might also go a little out of our bailiwick and write about, on one hand, restaurants or other venues that have great coffee but don’t offer a cafe experience, and on the other hand, favorite bakeries, chocolatiers, and ice cream shops that don’t sell coffee.
We reserve the right not to include any particular cafe in our guide.
