D & D coffee counter -- churros

Jeremy Osner | Sep 24, 199909:41 AM     3

Every morning before I go to work I buy a cup of coffee
from any of about 4 places. The place that I have
settled on over the past couple of months is the coffee
counter in the front of Dean and Deluca. It opens at 8
am, 2 hours before the rest of the store; their coffee
is better than anywhere else in the neighborhood except
Ceci Cela, which is further out of the way for me.
(Oddly -- this is Dean and Deluca after all! -- a
large cup of coffee costs $1.35, a bit less than at
most of the other high-end coffee counters in the
neighborhood, and not too much more than at the awful
street vendors.)

Their pastries are very good but outlandishly
expensive (eg $2.50 for a muffin); occasionally I treat
myself. Today I had a churro, a relatively new offering
-- a fried Mexican pastry stick dusted with sugar and
cinnamon, for $1.25. Excellent!
