We love Crooked Tree. Coffee and chai is excellent (although more expensive than most places in town), cupcakes are yummy (even the day-olds). Love the bright, clean, well-lit atmosphere downtown. Service is usually superb/we only had one "rude" experience with a barista when she snapped at us "the line is over there!" (there was only one other person in line and I wanted to look at cupcake options). Otherwise, can't complain. Our fav. winter spot for coffee and reading.
