I have a real love hate relationship with Turks. It is a funky little spot that has a very unique customer base, but the coffee is so inconsistent. I have had really great coffee here, but also a few liquid debacles. It seems like there is no rhyme or reason behind the wide range of quality either. It is a cool place to hang, with fun people watching and is open pretty late. However, it is a roll of the dice on the coffee, but if you roll enough you are sure to get a really good cup sometime.

This place was an exciting find. It does not have a lot of signage on the front, just like every minimal hipster place. That is exactly what it is. A hipster mecca! It seems like they transplanted a shop out of Portland or New York and plopped it down on the south end of Commercial Ave. It has no real art on the walls, and very plain design with lot’s of natural light. They have a very impressive La Marzcocca and the coffee is great! I have never been disappointed with the coffee and every barista seems to be on their shit. If you can handle the hipsterness and don’t want to talk to anybody then this is a awesome place.

A real awesome place on the corner of a block full of great shops and restaurants. It is the pointy part of a triangle shaped building and is a unique place to hang. A lot of hipsters kicking it, a lot of natural light that allows the hipsters to keep their sunglasses on while they hang out. Not a lot of places to sit, but the coffee is delicious. They have a fancy La Marzoca and lay down the goods on every drink I have ever ordered there.

I was very surprised to see a La Marzocco in the window of this small shop. They did not disappoint either. The coffee was great and the staff was very nice and very knowledgable of where their beans come from. This place has a feel of a tea room with great pastries and a very quaint atmosphere. Unfortunately there is no internet, but if you are looking for a great cup of coffee you have landed in the bomb-zone.
