In the wise words of a fellow fort, it's a trendy coffee shop with a drinking problem. And that's totally a good thing. We all felt the vibe in the place through the bubbly bartenders, personable patrons and charming decor. And, ya know, the booze weren't bad either. We shared a smooth South African Shiraz that I've dreamed about since. They also have artisan cheese and meat plates, an extensive tap list, and some yummy looking wine cocktails as well. It's great for drinks before dinner, a classy night out, the start of a fun crawl, or a casual first date. We'll definitely be back!
If I learned anything that night, it was that I handle a bottle better than I handle a bowling ball. But my F.O.R.T.s ain't half bad!
