Coffee shops near 6th & South St.?

Hungryin theBurbs May 13, 2009 11:19 AM

I have to meet an acquaintance near this area in the early afternoon. I'd prefer not to go to Starbucks. Does anyone know of any good independent coffee shops in the area? If not a coffee shop, someplace else where it's easy to sit and talk? Thanks!

      Anthony's Italian coffee house is not far, at 9th and Christian.

            Cafe Fulya is on 2nd Street at Monroe (about 1-2 blocks south of South) or there is a coffee shop on 9th St between South and Bainbridge that's gotten good reviews. I'll see if I can find the name.
