Irie: A Jamaican word that means "the state of feeling great." What else could you ask from a coffee shop and live music hangout?
Irie Bean Coffee Bar roasts their own coffee (a no-brainer for success in the modern coffee culture); they offer a daily happy hour special from 4-8 p.m.; and they frequently feature live music on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There's also a dog-friendly "Yappy Hour" on the patio. Don't forget your djembe for the regular community drum circle -- if you're into that sort of thing.
