There’s a segment of coffee shops still left in the world that fall into the category of “serving mediocre coffee since our last renovation in the early ’90s.” Atomic Bean, with its deep orange walls and corner bookshelf that’s (probably) filled with Archie comics, fits right into that category. On the plus side, you won’t have to fight anyone for a place to sit or for bandwidth on the wifi, so not everything from the ’90s is bad.
