Best Places for Coffee
Wherever we travel, we’re always on the hunt for the best places for coffee. There’s nothing like finding the best shot of espresso or your favorite coffee drink on those early mornings before a day of sight seeing or just sitting on a patio watching the world pass by.
Food & Wine magazine’s website has just put up a slideshow feature on the Best 30 Coffee Bars in the US. You can check it out here. Two of our favorites made the “best” list, Blue Bottle in San Francisco/NYC (our #1 US pick) and Northwest Coffee Roasters in Portland. Another Portland entry, Stumptown Roasters made the list, but on our last visit there, we had a less than pleasant experience and mediocre espresso at best. (Skip that and go to Northwest Coffee and you’ll be much happier.) We can’t wait to try some of the others mentioned on future travels.
