Cafecito Organico

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.

I encountered Cafetcito when my car battery died, and I had to get it replaced. After jumping it and driving it over to the garage across the street (called Rudy’s—also can’t say enough good things) the repair man suggested that I go across the street at Cafecito while I waited for my car. “They sell five-dollar coffee and people freaking love it” he told me, adding that he definitely entered the wrong line of work. However you feel about five-dollar coffee, this place does it well. It’s popular for a reason. The baristas are friendly enough, but not too aggressive and there are plenty of cool spots to seat. You’ll probably hear an obnoxious, earnest conversation or two between aspiring actors, but just throw your headphones in and enjoy the space. It’s definitely one of my favorites.

From small beginnings came this coffee shop that's now one of the hippest and well-known in the city. The beans are roasted to perfection, the drinks are expertly made and the vibe is relaxed. it's a total neighborhood place, with dog-friendly outdoor seating and a location that's just tucked away enough to make it seem like a comfy place to while away the hours with friends or tapping away on your Mac.
