If you need coffee before you can string words together in the morning, or it’s the middle of the afternoon and you’re looking for some caffeine and a snack, stop in at Arriviste on Ellsworth Avenue. Although the cafe is small and looks like the “cool floor” of a college library, it’s a comfortable place to pick up coffee or sit for a while with a laptop. The staff discusses blends like a parent talks about their children and will recommend something new to try, even if your go-to order is usually “hot coffee, please.”
