144 Walton Street
At Freedom of Espresso, you have the right to a strong cappuccino and free Internet access. You also have the right to make small talk with the man behind the counter and ask questions about the 27 different flavors of syrup or the artwork on the walls. This Armory Square café (one of four Freedom of Espressos in the area) has everything people love about local joints — coffee named after a town...

123 Marshall Street
Nothing beats the combination of a gooey, freshly baked cookie and some milk to top off a great night. Insomnia Cookies appeals to the midnight snack cravers, the families visiting their kids at ‘Cuse, and the nightly crowd coming out of Chucks. Basically, this M-Street staple works for everyone. The 'Dessert': Cookies are just a buck, but if you’re feeling really zealous, try a large cookie...

121 W. Fayette Street
  With a name like Bittersweet Wine and Dessert Bar, this West Fayette Street restaurant makes it clear to patrons what parts of the meal they are going to remember. Indeed, the wine list and dessert menu offer enough to leave only the snobbiest of eaters unsatisfied. But you might also be surprised at how much you enjoy the stuff that comes in between. When to Go: Bittersweet, which opened...

3521 James Street
You know the feeling. The immediate, involuntary response — almost too subtle to notice — but there in the greedy inhalation, fluttering eyelids and chest-held clutch as you watch the steam uncurl from the aromatic brew. A ritual familiar to all those who pay respect to the beverage that puts an extra pep in one’s step and provides that spare zap of energy to keep you going for that one last hour...

727 S. Crouse Ave. Suite 3
Update: Life is a Piece of Cake has closed. The exterior of Life is a piece of Cake looks like it’s been slathered with bubblegum pink icing, and once you walk through the door, the pink, black and white interior just screams “cute, cozy bakery.” The food case sits between a retro pink refrigerator and a pink and white counter. Every accent, from the white chandelier, to the coffee mugs...

731 S. Crouse Ave.
Hours: Monday—Friday: 5:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. • Saturday, Sunday: 6:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. At the heart of Bruegger's Bagel Bakery is the atmosphere of a small-town restaurant with the affordability of a fast-food conglomerate. Bruegger's genius is specializing in one basic breakfast item. It's like Krispy Kreme, but for bagels. The bakery offers dozens of freshly baked bagels and home-made...

110 Harvard Place
If it weren’t for the sign hanging from the second-floor balcony, or the fliers for local events hanging in the windows, you might think the Recess Coffee House and Roastery is just another house. Situated on a residential block just off Westcott Street, Recess looks unassuming and modest. But once inside, your nose will be greeted with the aroma of fresh-roasted coffee and just-out-of-the-...
