Spacious, comfortable, and often not crowded, this coffeehouse serves up some delicious, healthy, and beautiful breakfast bowls composed of Greek yogurt and Cafe Fanny granola--the acai bowl features mixed berries, while the cacao bowl features cacao nibs and blackberries.  Pastries include morning buns and croissants.  Avocado and other toasts (think butternut squash with bourbon jam; curry-roasted cauliflower; ricotta and fresh berries) segue into lunch and a menu of sandwiches prepared with Acme breads.  Drinks include the expected as well as hot caramel milk, a lychee black tea latte, and several kombuchas.  Soft-serve ice cream is available, and you can pick up packaged Cafe Fanny granola to go.  The restive ambience includes plenty of natural light, green plants, and smooth jazz.  Though some people come here to work, it is quite pleasant just to gaze out the windows or people-watch.
