Check it Out: The Coffee Garden


My new favorite place to drink a half-caf, quadruple-shot latte (no foam, thanks very much) is in the shady, jungle-like back patio of Coffee Garden, an eclectic, art- and kitsch-filled café on Franklin Boulevard. In addition to the great java and pastries (don’t miss the sweet, finger-licking lemon-poppyseed poundcake), Coffee Garden also offers a yummy lineup of sandwiches and salads.
