Capital “C” Cafe Experience at Roots Cafe

You’ve seen a French movie, right? You know how the ludicrously attractive, ethereal girl will talk about stuff with the swarthy guy over coffee? They’ll be musing about love, life, or whatever with their pretty lips while even-tempo jazz and the clinks of coffee cups happen in the background? And

Free Coffee, Just Bring Your Own Mug Today at Starbucks

In an effort to get all of us wasteful human beings to stop acting like the world’s going to end in 2012, Starbucks will fill up any coffee mug you bring in today, up to 20 ounces. I’m sure we could spend all day debating who brews the best coffee
