Brew Urban Cafe
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
It's a majestic coffee shop that also serves wine and beer - perhaps that's why Brew Urban Café is appropriately nestled in the slew of bars of downtown Fort Lauderdale. Tucked behind Tarpon Bend off Second Avenue, silver tables and chairs are planted on the sidewalk - usually filled with folks who can carry conversations. Inside, among the plush chairs and half-moon booths, there's a great mosaic of a coffee-drinking goddess. Indie, local art hangs on the walls courtesy of the art/DJ event Brew hosts each month called Dialect. Be ballsy and try the godzilla: That's 40 grams of protein and four shots of espresso. Or go for the electric shock: That's a vanilla-and-cinnamon-infused espresso, complete with a caramel glaze. Every coffee-shop-goer's dream is fulfilled: free wi-fi and friendly baristas. The microbeer selection includes Dogfish Punk, Stoudt American Pale Ale, and Rogue Dead Guy. Just try to find a Bolshevic Revolution anywhere else. Or, really, just try to stroll into a bar in downtown Fort Lauderdale and get served coffee.

Voted Best Coffeehouse for 2010-"Its Seattle-style ambiance and fastidiously prepared drinks have won over a large group of regulars who chat together in half-moon booths, lofty tables,& plush chairs"
They provide dog water bowls. Enough said.
Try the latest seasonal frappes and start thinking of the holidays and cooler weather! My fav: peppermint :)
Best coffee in town and the best atmosphere. Staff is super friendly and makes you feel at home. Highly recommended.
Iced black raspberry tea is super yum!
