La Colombe Torrefaction Restaurant Review

: Done in terra cotta and warm woods, with original artwork adorning the walls, La Colombe is a true French coffeehouse that roasts some of the best coffee in the city. The relaxed atmosphere encourages customers to savor rather than gulp their java. Have a seat at a little mosaic table, nibble a fresh croissant or other light fare to complement a caffè latte, and watch while chess or cards are played at nearby tables. Reading material is abundant as folks have gotten into the habit of leaving newspapers behind for the next customer. Fragrant beans can be ordered on-line for the La Colombe taste in your own kitchen.
