It’s sad it’s taken me this long to write about my absolute favorite coffee shop in the city (yeah, like I’ve been to them all) – Black Tap Coffee. It is on Beaufain, right down the street from me. Speaking of Beaufain, I thought I finally found a Louisiana-style street name I could pronounce. Well, it is apparently “BYOO-fain.” No.
Anywho, this coffee shop is so adorable! It’s a mix of modern and country. Clean lines with lots of wooden and black & white accents. The music playing today is like a folkier Willie Nelson. I’m not cool enough to know hip artists’ names.
They have delicious pastries provided by WildFlour Pastries. I love how coffee shops here will provide local outsourced baked goods. Ham and cheese croissant – do it.
Now to the best thing about this place – the cofffffeee (cue Carrie Bradshaw: “I have an addiction, sir!”). They use the pour-over-coffee method, so don’t get impatient waiting for your cup of jo. I knew this place was a winner when the owner didn’t even hesitate when I asked for a cafe au lait. (Aside: the owner’s wife is from Morgan City – yay Louisiana)
This cafe au lait is one of the BEST I’ve ever had. I’m in love with this coffee.
Because I can work from wherever I want, I am posting up shop here today. Doesn’t my office look fine? Visitors are welcome by pretend appointment only.
