WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE | EVERYDAY
By Jo Rittey
Everyday is the kind of place where people arrive on skateboard. Hell, it’s the kind of place people video their friends from the doorway as they pass by lying down on aforementioned skateboards. Well ok, that might not always happen, But it happened while I was there and people didn’t seem that fazed. It is certainly the kind of place where freelance-type designer-type people come with Mac Airbooks and/or swathes of paper with cool looking hand-drawn cartoons. Also happened when I was there.
Everyday is the epitome of the overused adage, less is more. There’s a teensy food menu and if they’ve had a busy morning, you’ll be hard pressed to get much more than a fruit bagel or some kind of cookie or cake from the cabinet. Also. Happened. To me. A lot went on in a short space of time at Everyday, ok?
But really the coffee is why they come. The coffee and the light and bright creative vibe. Even if you’re not creative, you can be vicariously. And sometimes that’s enough.
So anyway, the coffee. espresso-wise, there’s a bean for black and a bean for white and then there are two possibilities for brewed coffee and three types of tea. Simple. Good.
