We all might be a little sick of national and international holidays honoring food, friendship and drinks, but what better item to celebrate than our trusty sidekick; coffee. October 1 marks International Coffee Day, an entire 24 hours of honoring coffee grown, roasted and brewed to perfection all around the world.

Coffee is our friend, our ally and someone we can always count on in times of sleep deprivation and tasty cravings.  Here in the City by the Sea we may have some locally brewed grounds, but you might be surprised at how global our shops can be.

All the way from the Land Down Under to Little Italy we share our local shops in a global light. Celebrate this international holiday right and grab a cup of joe from your favorite shop today...it is a holiday, so instead indulge and try them all!
