I.M. Coffee

Subject: I.M. Coffee
Location: Wilmington, DE
WiFi?: yes
Rating: 6+ [see key]

Coffee shops and tall buildings are meant to exist in a natural symbiosis, one where tenants have easy access to great coffee, yet sadly so many skyscrapers exist without a great cafe within stones throw. But each city has its pockets of joy, such as Wilmington's I.M. Coffee in the lobby of the I.M. Pei Building.

I am always struck with how much of Pennsylvania I still have yet to visit. I literally try to take a different route each time I traverse the state and still, I find surprises unsought.

Brown Dog Cafe

Subject: Brown Dog Cafe
Location visited: Audubon, NJ
WiFi?: yes
Rating: 5+ [see key]

It is never easy to hear about long-standing coffeehouses closing their doors, but when I heard of the Treehouse, formerly of Collingswood and then in Audubon, had shut its doors, it hit a little harder than usual. Fortunately, the shop did not remain vacant and a new coffee entity arose out of the ashes of the Treehouse, a shop called Brown Dog Cafe.
