Before moving to Paris I lived in the Powderhorn neighborhood and went to May Day almost daily. Super coffee and super food. Love the soup of the day everyday and the burritos are so flame. Favorite cafe ever.

I lived near this joint for 5 years. They have great pastries and cookies at reasonable prices. Where else can you get a 8 inch choco-chip cookie for $1.50? They bake fresh muffins and cookies and pastry every day, and they serve Peace Brothers Coffee....More
