Best Coffeehouse

Talkies Film & Coffee Bar

Talkies is great because it meets so many needs you never knew you had. For $3.50, you can get a good-sized mocha, with enough chocolate to disguise the bitter taste of a double espresso. It's also got all kinds of flavored-coffee drinks as well as four varieties of regular joe. There's a small menu of sandwiches and a cooler stocked with ice cream. And then there are the seating options. The shop's centerpiece is its miniature movie theater, which shows everything from The Exorcist to SpongeBob Squarepants. For quiet reading, there's a separate room, with sturdy, high-backed chairs, great lighting, and a hushed atmosphere. Wherever you sit, you can hook into Talkies' WiFi internet connection. With all these amenities, it's easy to forget that Talkies consistently has the best-tasting coffee in town.
