World Cup Coffee & Tea House Restaurant Review

: World Cup roasts coffee beans daily, making it the caffeinated equivalent of a brewpub. Baristas are often creative with their d├ęcor when you order a latte or cappuccino, transforming the creamy foam into flowers or hearts. There are also about a dozen loose teas available to entice tea drinkers, each brewed in individual French presses. If you're hungry, nibble on hearty breakfast pastries, choose a dessert, or pick from the decent sandwich menu. Order some beans --- hot off the roaster --- to go, or hang out for a while basking in the natural light and clicking into free WiFi. On nice days, there's outdoor seating. Coffee-drinking book lovers know there's a second location adjacent to Powell's City of Books.
