Best Hot Chocolate
Espresso Royale Caf6
We found the coffee to be
playful yet articulate, elegant yet
understated. The only problem is
trying to keep a carry-out cup of
coffee hot while you walk to class.
Caf6 Pretentious is recognized
for more than its coffee. Remember
it caters to self-styled intellectuals
and avant garde cultural critics in a
myriad of desserts and beverages.
And they have a frothing good cup
of hot chocolate to boot.

on Monday, the $2 ones on
Wednesday, and the 3 p.m. to 8

that, but sometimes it gets a little
