Betterday Coffee, Santa Fe: Stumptown Coffee, serious craft

finlero | Feb 10, 2012 08:53 AM

Just a heads-up that there's a very good new coffeehouse in the Solana Shopping Center (where La Montanita is).

They use Stumptown Coffee (Portland's darling of the Third Wave coffee movement), they have a high-end La Marzocco espresso machine, and know how to pull espresso and steam milk.

They have some kitchen fare I haven't tried, very little in the way of pastries and snacks.

Good seating, appropriately pretentious hipster vibe, lots of seating, free parking.

Espresso up in Santa Fe is now really about Holy Spirit and this place, and Holy Spirit doesn't have anywhere to park or sit. (Downtown Subscription is excellent when it's on, but of variable quality depending on who's working.)

So glad this place is here, it really fills a void.
