STOR's luminous space and clean design make it a perfect place to work and relax in. The staff is serious about coffee. I had a divine cappuccino and black drip coffee (the café also offers Chemex and AeroPress preparations). When I ordered the coffee, the gentleman behind the counter asked me (in excellent English) what type of coffee I wanted — nutty, chocolatey with caramel notes, or fruity? I chose fruity, and he suggested a coffee from Ethiopia that he said had strawberry notes that would taste like "sunbeams in my cup." How could I say no?
On the food front, STOR is pretty incredible as well. I tried a delicious carrot, apple, and ginger juice, a sandwich with pastrami and pickles, and a fabulous slice of meringue cake, or patsy mleczko as it's called here. The crowd is hip, prices are good, and the atmosphere is on point.
