Blue Line Coffee: Off the beaten path, or I should say in a more quiet part of town, I stumbled upon this coffee shop. It was the perfect way to start my day.
Legends Comics & Coffee: This is one of the coolest coffee shops I’ve ever been to simply for the combo of comics and coffee. And it was good coffee. I don’t know everything about the comic world, but the guys here showed me the way through new comics I should be reading, including those from Europe.
Block 16: I first announced this on Twitter and I stand by it, the Croque Garcon burger available at Block 16 is on my top five burger list. There was a perfect ratio of meat-to-bun, which so many people overlook. And the condiments were just right, including that mustard.
New Amsterdam: Falafel. Fans of mine know I appreciate a good cup of coffee, airy doughnut and hot dog. But I also love falafel. Here at Amsterdam, I had my sandwich with the spicy sauce. Holy wow. It was seriously spicy — but it brought a new flavor to a classic sandwich that I welcomed.
Lithuanian Bakery: This bakery has been open since the 60s and is known for their tortes. I also decided to try their bow-ties (of course) and cherry strudel.
