Meet and Treat at Beat Street

Caffeine is a hell of a drug

cups

This morning I finally got my act together enough to try Beat Street Coffee on Main on my way to work.

The hood as been badly needing a coffee place like this. Candlelight is just a little too far for the on-a-whim coffee dash from my place. I know, I’m being picky, but whatever.

They serve lunch and dinner and beer/wine, too, and some breakfast foods. I spied a quiche that looked good and some pre-packaged fancy oatmeal. The friendly gal behind the counter said that lunch is their busiest time right now.

That corner booth is calling my name for next time

I popped in this morning about 7:30 and I was the only customer (not surprising, 7:30 is a little rough on a Friday, or any day). Because I don’t usually like ordering normal coffee at coffee places because I can make it at home, I opted for an old friend I hadn’t had since my Italian hiatus: ESPRESSO!

GUUUUURL it was so good, I had forgotten what that bright, bitter love liquid was all about.

ALL GONE!!

Since when I woke up I wasn’t sure if I’d have time to stop by Beat Street, I went ahead and made coffee at home. So my espresso loveliquid had been preceded by TWO George Washington mugs full of coffee. Needless to say…

THE DRIVE TO WORK WAS GREAT!!!

I took the stairs, instead of the elevator, to the 10th floor in hopes that it would balance out my sudden ABUNDANCE OF ENERGY!

NOPE!

 

Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
