We typically try to avoid superlatives, but Vivace probably makes the best espresso in the city. It’s the kind of place that puts a lot of care into their coffee - your to-go cup will even involve foam art. They’ll even replace your ristretto shot for free when you drop it all over the sidewalk (this has certainly not happened recently to us). For your early morning starts, grab some Sunrise Tacos for breakfast here and get to work - there’s free wifi and a room in the back that’s specifically meant for quiet time. Also, the proximity to Bait Shop is very ideal when happy hour is necessary post-hustle.
