is the stumptown at the ace hotel better than the one in brooklyn? i've all but stopped going to the one in brooklyn -- serious consistency issues.
Significantly better, if you're talking about Cafe Pedlar. I've stopped frequenting Pedlar and will go to Iris Cafe, which is also much better and more consistent.
yes, i'm talking about pedlar.
i haven't been to iris -- i'll try it. it's a bit out of the way for me.
i sometimes go to coop on atlantic (the crop to cup place). i've had excellent coffee there. they have consistency issues, but it's binary -- it's excellent ~90% of the time and terrible ~10% of the time. and customer service is excellent 60% of the time and terrible 40% of the time.
