Coffee is a way of life here, and incredible local roasters like Herkimer, Caffé Vita, Cafè Fiorè, Lighthouse, Fuel, Victrola, and Zoka are a dime a dozen. On the cocktail front, the city’s having a golden age, with locally made bitters like Scrappy’s and house-infused syrups the norm. Murray Stenson, named Bartender of the Year at Tales of the Cocktail (the Oscars for bartenders) in 2010, is a local, and his protégés man great bars across the city.
