Ruta Maya Coffee House

218 W. Fourth, 472-9637

Sun-Thu, 7am-1am; Fri-Sat, 7am-2am

Now one of the older coffee joints in town, Ruta Maya uses its warehouse space for real-life industrial activity -- roasting its own coffees for local restaurants, homegrown groceries, and on-site enjoyment. It's literally one big room that's taken on the best trappings of a multifunction entertainment complex, with weathered tables and an elevated stage for nightly live music. Ruta Maya and Cubita coffees and coffee drinks share the bill with bagels, pastries, Cuban sandwiches, and ice cream.
