Which, yeah, was a problem. Neighborhood coffee’s kinda essential.
Seems like somebody else agreed...
Hold a cup out for Sip Stir Café, a Zen-like hangout with strong joe, flaky pastries and remote office potential, now open on McKinney Ave.
And just in case you need a how-to-coffee-shop refresher, this might help.
Stop in for a morning pick-me-up. They’re making cold-brewed coffee in an elaborate, slow-drip chemistry set. This bit of sorcery lowers the coffee’s acidity level, which makes it taste good. Damn good.
You need a break. A moment to relax. Preferably with wi-fi. So sink into a high-backed leather banquette. Then take a look around. Avocado greens, light woods, white marble. Plants growing on the walls like it’s some kind of terrarium. Soak it all in. Feel your blood pressure lower. Steal a quick nap.
You have a date tonight. A first date. A casual encounter where you’ll get to know each other over Americanos and walnut scones. Talk about music. And hobbies. And whether they have a walnut allergy.
All that usual first-date stuff.
