This is a place to sip, surf, linger and graze popular with the Rice U crowd. The coffee is handpicked, single-origin and shade-grown. Wednesday night is tango night, but every day you can experience the crust-less sandwiches typical of Argentina, the birthplace of the tango, as well as some terrific wines from the region. Other food choices include empanadas, cheese and nut plates and homemade pastries.
