Lake Isles Bun and Coffee
28th and Hennepin Ave. S. | Minneapolis
Double Espresso – $1.50
This was a classic case of a 2oz. espresso shot in a 12oz. paper cup. I even feel awkward when I have to serve a quad shot at DBC in a 12 oz cup. But I get it, people like to load it up with creamer and get a little more bang for their buck. The espresso was actually pretty good. I found out that they source their coffee through “True Stone Coffee Roasters” which is a micro-roastery based out of St. Paul. It was actually pretty refreshing to hear a coffee shop carrying an independent local roaster that I had never heard of. http://www.truestonecoffee.com/ This place is definitely worth the stop in sometime. They make all these great fresh bakery items on site, and it is definitely a quiet little hidden gem in the hip and almighty Uptown area.
