For a taste of a Greenwich Village coffee house with a touch of Wall Street, there’s Opening Bell Coffee in the basement of Southside on Lamar, the historic Sears building converted to residential lofts. Besides delicious cups of fair trade coffee and espresso, they also serve tea, smoothies, juice, and a full menu, including breakfast tacos all day! With weekly open mic nights and community events, it’s also a great place for singer-songwriters to hang out and get discovered.
