Tourists and Westsiders may wait in 20-minute lines at Intelligentsia up the street, but locals prefer Cafecito, the quieter shop on Hoover. Here you’ll find less pretension, more privacy—as well as the addictive Espresso Clandestino ($2.50 per cup, $12 per bag). The shop is small with only a bit of counter space inside, but a spacious covered (and pet-friendly) patio makes for a good place to get work done, catch up with friends or make eyes at your neighbor. Street parking isn't tough to find, and bike racks abound for two-wheeled commuters.
