Catalina Coffee

This is not a corporate caffeine factory - Catalina prides itself on expertly crafted coffee drinks. There's not much outdoor seating, but the interior is warm and library-like, with big windows that look out on the part of Washington Avenue that has yet to be invaded by frat bars. The espresso selection rotates regularly and pastries are available. This is definitely a place for those who would step into Starbucks during only the most dire caffeine emergencies.
