Yesterday on my way home, I stopped by Caffino, the new cafe on Crescent just north of 30th Avenue. It’s a great little spot with some delicious coffee, and the decor is beautiful, too. I especially like the blue counter.

The coffee is also delicious—they are using La Colombe beans. Right now they are doing espresso drinks (hot and iced) with their La Marzocco espresso machine, as well as cold brew coffee. They plan to do pour overs in the future, too. I tried a cold brew coffee, which was nice and strong and tasty, fortified with some Battenkill half and half. The Balthazar pastries also looked good. And they have sandwiches!

The owners were there, and were very friendly. They are really excited to be running a cafe, and I expect we’ll see great things from them. Stay tuned for their social media presence to kick in, too.
