This 1960s-style coffeehouse attracts an artsy crowd, including adventurous local high schoolers who want to hear live music but can't get into the bars yet. Sofas, chessboards, laid-back counter service, and a bulletin board encourage an intimacy unmatched in most other cafés. On Sunday night there's an open mike for aspiring musicians. On other nights, a string of singer-songwriters and contemporary or traditional folk artists performs. It's a 20-minute cab ride from
downtown and opens every night at 7 pm.
