Non-starbucks coffee shops PART II

MADMAN ESPRESSO

http://www.madmanespresso.com/

coffee: not bad. 

hipsterness: the cafe is pretty small, so yes. but there isn’t a lot of space if coming as a group.

wifi: yes

pastry: yes

barista: I think she calls herself “latte-artist” because my cup of latte came with flowers/those leafy things drawn in the foam

WAYSIDE

http://waysidenyc.com/

coffee: I don’t really remember so I guess mediocre? 

hipsterness: not very. it’s like a mainstream cafe. there are tables facing the wall that are dedicated for laptop use, and you are not supposed to use laptops at those tables in the middle.

wifi: yes

pastry: yes. there’s also food (sandwich, salad, etc..), and beer and wine.

barista: pretty nice

myWayCup coffee

http://www.mywaycup.com/

coffee: good

hipsterness: the decor is pretty hipster, but tables are small and low, so not very good for doing work. also not too big of a space - suitable mostly for one person or two people

wifi: no/didn’t ask for password

pastry: yes - they look delicious but I didn’t have one

barista: very friendly. I think she also calls herself “latte-artist” because the foam on top of my latte was in some kind of a pattern

The sadness was form. The happiness content. Happiness filled the space of sadness.
