Remember when coffeeshops were places to converse rather than simply plug in and tune out with a laptop? Ula's relaxed atmosphere helps maintain that “café as public sphere” ethos. The staff occasionally shuts down its free Wi-Fi during peak hours, ensuring that the shop isn't constantly overrun by YouTube-surfing hipsters. The coffees are diverse and delicious—try the Café Cubano with cinnamon and brown sugar—and the sweet potato sandwich can't be beat.
