This popular Garden District coffee shop is all about "third wave" coffee brewing techniques, from the pour over and the Oji drip, to Japanese iced and cold brewed blends. Beyond the inventive, contemporary treats, however, the classic steamed-milk espresso combos are prepared expertly, served hot, and always topped with a masterful milk-design, formed effortlessly by the barista-at-hand. The Rishi-curated tea program offers an eclectic roster of loose-leaf blends, fresh smoothies are made-to-order, and the matcha lattes are almost as tasty as the ones prepared with real shots of espresso. And when it comes to food, the menu features far more than pastries, boasting a collection of avocado and aoli-topped breakfast sandwiches, fresh quiches, and egg bowls packed with grains, sauteèd greens and colorful smatterings of local meat and produce.
