Little City serves some of the city's finest coffee using fresh roasted beans from Central America, Indonesia, and East Africa. They describe their Top Shelf Blend as "really more like Al Green than coffee," which sounds pretty stimulating to me. Happy Hour, during which all coffee, espresso drinks, and fruit frappés are half-off, runs from 5-7pm every weekday. Little City also has a good selection of baked goods, and the downtown location serves up several delectable varieties of salads and sandwiches.
