If you’re a person who prioritizes quality coffee above everything else, Milstead & Co. is your spot. They serve an excellent cup of coffee, and also sell bags of Intelligentsia beans to-go for when you procrastinate and need to finish up at your kitchen table later at 3am. Note: most of the seating is communal, so use this place if you’re great at tuning out all other humans, or you need a place for your team to work (they do have wifi). Don't leave without a homemade Oreo from Standard Bakery.
