Black Tap— which I lovingly call ‘Crack Tap’ — is a sunny, minimal cafe that makes coffee lovers beam from ear to ear. Be warned, concoctions like lavender lattes are rocket fuel. This intimate space is not a laptop cafe; instead visitors chat and read The Times splayed out on the communal table. Bonus: the staff are cute, scruffy guys rocking out to New Order and Future Islands!
