The coffee:

Our first visit to SO in The Grove was punctuated by serendipitous (re)discovery…

  • LA’s scrumptious little bakery, Short Cake, is right here, at SO, baked goods literally being produced directly behind the SO staff in what amounts to an outdoor operation. How do they get the crusts on those perfect little apple pies so flaky in that heat?

  • SO is a Verve account. And a good one. I have that on authority. Trust me.

  • Damn if every time I meet an employee of Verve, they’re not some the nicest people in the coffee biz.
