Met a friend for coffee this morning. Although I had been familiar with this cafe at its old location on Hamline in St. Paul, I haven't been to the new place on Marshall Avenue. I will return because it was a wonderful experience. I got coffee served just the way I liked it. When the barista learned that I wanted a decaf latte (plasphemy, I know) because of health reasons she suggested an alternative since they do not have decaf with latte. I ordered the drink with the low decaf content espresso plus bread, butter, and jam. The server selected a wonderful choice of bread for me and knowing that it came from Rustica Bakery, I knew it would be good! And it was. Next time I'll try the terrific looking croissants. The restaurant is clean with knowledgeable and friendly staff. A bit noisy for quiet conversation and the tables are uncomfortably close, yet it was a fine experience. In addition, I ran into some people I know. . .obviously it is a popular neighborhood gathering place.
