At summer’s end, cattle egrets dot the fields with shocks of white, and by early fall, Canada geese stand like awkward, misshapen soldiers in places lush with grass mere weeks ago. Snow geese…See More

"Condor, Greg and Espresso Fino are in the article. It's a great space--all three you mentioned are. You're one of the lucky ones who gets to work near all those great coffee shops!"

"I work downtown, and over the past couple of years we've had great additions to the coffee scene.  You mention The Brew and Zendo, but leave off Espresso Fino on Gold (although you've got a nice photo of its interior with Greg the…"

"Duggan's is great! If I wasn't such an AM procrastinator I'd go there many times per week. As it is, I pretty much never go there, but I feel regret every morning as I drive by."
