Lazy Latte Log: Cafe Grumpy

TL;DR: ★★★★☆

Not too shabby, not shabby at all. But also not ridiculously mind-blowing as many have claimed.

Americano ($3) and strawberry corn muffin ($3)
(20th St. & 8th Ave., among various locations)

While I did enjoy Cafe Grumpy's Americano — full-bodied, bold, all that good stuff — there was nothing about it that made me crave for more. And for me, that's a pretty strong indicator. (Side note, the muffin was delicious!)

Cappuccino ($4)

Same went for the cappuccino. Again, all the good stuff — smooth, rich, strong — but no wow factor. And given the hefty prices, you would think these drinks would have you aching for more. What's the deal here?

Not sure, but Grumpy is still pretty up there in my ranks of coffee shops. It just doesn't quite draw me in as much as others do.
