Simply put, Gryphon is a treasure.
I immediately regret the fact that I didn't have my camera, but these pictures (although instagrammy) capture some of the charm of this perfectly situated cafe. Everything from the lovely handpainted pottery to the big airy space is enchanting; it's a well-established and well taken care of little nook with a friendly (and talented!) crew behind the counter. Paired with a chocolate crossiant, this latte took me right back to Europe. Oh, how I'd love to live in walking distance to a place like this. I would spend every weekend morning here.
My latte was made with lots of love and care - perfect foam, perfect size. You know you're in a good place when your latte is carefully handed off to you at your table, topped with a pretty leaf; that 's when you know it was poured with a little TLC. :) My friend got a skim hot chocolate and it was equally as delectable; so rich. I think I'm looking at a new coffee love.
