Best Specialty Drinks 2016: Coffee lovers often have one or two
go-tos, but Burlap and Bean's unique monthly offerings are enough to make anyone indecisive. Sample options like the Ice Blushed Chai, Springtime Spritzer and Apple Strudel Mocha. There's also a power smoothie.

Best Unexpected Live Music Venue 2015: From its nondescript strip-mall locale, this popular coffee shop has cemented its reputation as a destination of choice for touring singer/songwriters, bringing in the likes of Carlene Carter and Freedy Johnston for memorable BYOB shows that resemble living-room jam sessions. The intimacy factor is the key here. By design, performances at Burlap and Bean effortlessly break down the barrier between artist and fan.

Best Coffeehouse, 2014: By day, it’s a cozy spot filled with local moms and laptop-toting regulars. By night, the place is a vibrant performance space, drawing an increasingly impressive mix of touring acts and local musicians, poets and storytellers.

All B&B coffee - single-origin varieties, in-house blends and seasonal offerings - is roasted on-site using certified-organic, fair-trade beans. Go with a French press to best experience the intensity.
