Time Out says

For a Mexican spin on a coffee shop, head to Cafe Urbano, which focuses on Mexican heritage in its decor, coffee and food. The space is bright and open, with wooden chairs and tables throughout, including high-top chairs by the windows, an ideal spot to work on free Wi-Fi. The walls are graced with Mexican-themed art from local artists, which rotates as artwork is purchased.

Cafe Urbano has an extensive coffee menu, with beans from Metropolis, including drinks like the turtle mocha and raspberry latte. But the real standout here is their Abuelita Mocha, which is made with Mexican chocolate, which gives it a rich flavor and some spice. For food, there's an extensive menu including egg melts, tostadas, including an outstanding tostada frittata—a traditional tostada topped with scrambled eggs, queso fresco, tomatos and avocados—and paninis on ciabatta bread. They also have sweets like macarons and muffins from La Boulangerie.
