i found myself wandering for coffee in my sister’s neighborhood several weeks back. she said, “there’s a starbucks down the street.” (yeah, right, i thought.) walking down Smith St. i saw a little chalkboard sign for Bien Cuit. someone had drawn the most adorable cup of steaming coffee on the sign. it was so adorbs i went in, and immediately i was in love. they had been open only 4 days at that point, but everything was perfecto. linen cafe curtains. gorgeous sweet and savory tarts. amazing croissants and raisin breads. blonde wood tables and cherry red cabinetry.
heaven. be sure to look at their website, their pictures are approximately 100x nicer.
