delicious coffee, sandwiches – I recently met with friends at this cafe. I was enchanted with the cafe's cozy atmosphere, very nice choice of wines and a friend ordered a prosciutto- mozarella sandwich which was very good. The couple of hours we were there, in and out walked very fashionable, beautiful people, a lot of local artists, and I hear it's a low key hang out for some young celebs (Kevin Bacon & Meg Ryan recently filmed a scene or two of a new movie here). I was told their main room is closed due to construction (the space is at a nice corner location) but meanwhile I'll definitely go back to this little cafe with a lot of soul -- and great music too.
Cute and cozy – I highly recommend this place. It's very atmospheric, inexpensive and always plays good music. There's also a good choice of wines (from $5 per glass), as well as any other beverage you could want. As for the food, i've only ever had the coffee crumb cake, but that was tasty. The best thing about Pick-me-Up is that you can sit there forever with a cup of coffee, no-one's in a rush to get you out. Great place to meet up for a drink and chill.
Reminded me of Paris – It's one of those places where you sit and sit your cup of joe and imagine yourself transported. It could be the artistic vibe or the music playing over the speakers, the dim lighting and the rustic table and chairs, but I always think of being back in Paris.
The hotties that are frequenting or walking by don't hurt either...
