  • Go get some coffee and watch the Web 2.0 nerds hang out on stoops at the alley next to 330 Ritch.
  • Can someone please tell me if I'm supposed to pay when I order my coffee or pay when I get my coffee? Always awkward.
  • Sketchy alley coffee shop. Super nice baristas. Cash only.
  • Pour over drip coffee!
  • While the baristas here tend to be less friendly and talkative than folks at other shops, they make excellent espresso drinks and their prices are affordable compared to other places.
  • uh, it's pronounced "CH-ento", you simpletons!
  • Bring cash. Otherwise, you're the guy everyone hates who holds up the line and the building is the size of "very small", so.
  • Fresh baked croissants every morning! Get 'em while you can!
  • If you don't need something to go get the macchiato. Cento bars are good too.
  • Try Cento coffee. Tastes great and is served in a nice glass.
  • Get the "Cento": it's their version of a Gibraltar served in a highball glass.
  • Heavy hitter. Ice coffee (chicory) + a shot. They ring the bell! They may card you if you order this
  • Try the Centini and spot it on Foodspotting
  • One of these days, they'll figure out the whole taking-orders-taking-money thing.
  • Give John Quintos a hug. Tell him TownHog sent you.
  • They accept credit cards now! Visit their sister cafe, Cafe Lambretta, for more food options.
  • Cafe latte
  • Now takes cards!
  • If you have time to hang out for a bit, get the Cento (not available to go). Similar to a cappuccino, but with a bit less milk foam.
