It’s easy to write off Juan Pelota as a pet project of Lance Armstrong’s Mellow Johnny’s bike shop, but the adjoined cafe is much more than just a place to wait while for a tune-up. The tongue-in-cheek name harks to the consequences of Armstrong’s cancer treatments (pelota is Spanish for “ball”), but they aren’t joking with the coffee. Shots using beans from Stumptown and Dallas-based Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters make it the best downtown coffee option west of Congress Ave.
