Cafe Twelve (fka Brew HaHa!)

I was worried when Millennium Cafe departed that we'd lose a cafe from that beautiful windowed space. Then I worried again when I saw the name of the cafe moving in, and learned it was a small chain. Yet, I've come to appreciate this spot, in spite of its goofy name. I'm always happy it's there when I need to stop in for a warm drink or to designate a meet-up spot with friends. The baristas are consistently terrific friendly and easy-going. The eats and drinks are sufficiently tasty, if not inexpensive, and they have d a well-lit coziness far more appealing than Cosi (and certainly Starbucks). If you don't feel like schlepping down to Last [drop], or you want a simple half-sandwich (cheaper!) and tea, then you may also find that BHH is a great resource for the neighborhood.

It's a small chain coffee shop that tries to operate between the neighborhood joint and the major chain. They pipe in bad music, they have mediocre coffee, and their prices are a touch high. However, they do a very good job of training their baristas, and they seem to that good old fashion bitter but lovable vibe. If you are in the neighborhood, I'd check out other places instead.
