Forget Starbucks; the newest “third place” in town, Corso Coffee, brings coffee worthy of the most particular connoisseur (true to Italian tradition, they offer handcrafted, wood-roasted Anèri Tricaffè espresso plus locally roasted, artisanal American drip) and fare that doesn’t look like it’s been sitting in a plastic box in a refrigerated display case for hours — because it hasn’t. Start the day with a freshly baked pastry, choose from an assortment of salads and sandwiches for lunch and indulge in a platter of artisanal cured meats and cheeses — plus wine or a cocktail — at dinner. Corso’s offerings satisfy all day-long — patio, wi-fi and great people watching included.
