You built a coffee house out of a DeLorean?

OK yes, they built a coffee house around a DeLorean, and enough ’80s themed items of nostalgia to put a smile on the face of any Gen-Xer who has memorized Ghostbusters and still has a collection of Star Wars action figures in the attic.

You can find Calvin and Hobbs books, Nintendo games, vintage movie posters and yes, that full-size DeLorean that looks like it flew in straight from the set of Back to the Future.

The peanut-butter latte seems to be the go-to house drink, but it offers plenty of flavors for any taste. A recent signature drink was the Clove Encounters of the Fig Kind, if that gives you the type of mentality you’re dealing with here. Yes, they are proud to be nerds and they have a great sense of humor about it.

HalfWit Coffee Roasters provides the beans and the sweets come from the Fritz Pastry company. It’s a great place to grab a coffee and a Danish on the way to work, or spend some time there and work. May the Force be with you.
