Arriviste Coffee Bar review image

Arriviste Coffee Bar

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.”
