If you frequent the fair, fair 'Mount, it's easy to be discouraged by the lack of coffee bars. Rather than invite you over, I implore you to make your way to Flying Saucer for Latte Happy Hour, which runs from 4-5pm on weekdays. Your steamy milky ways can be had for half price, which almost makes you feel like you're not poor. You might even allow yourself one of those lovely vegan cookies to go with.
Pop by their website if you have any doubts. It's a sure perk.

On another side of town, the hours are always happy. If you want to drink like a king and feel it, there's another option I am willing to share. I shall say it a million times and then another one. Spruce Street Espresso bangs out the most undeniable soy latte I have ever met. Worth every one of its four dollars, it drives me to such an inspired high that I want to chuck everything and hire its baristi for my own personal use.
