On a busy day, there's nothing better than a box of java from Bridgeport Coffee Hyde Park to keep your mind sharp. Of course, you'll probably want to share it with your coworkers, since one of these massive boxes holds a whopping 96 ounces of coffee.
Swing by this beloved cafe on your way to work—it's near The Blackwood, so it won't be too far out of the way—and greet the day with some caffeine coursing through your veins. Even if you don't need an entire box of coffee, you can still grab a single-serving espresso, cafe au lait, cappuccino, or a simple cup of the daily pour-over. Pair it with house-made granola, a bagel smeared with cream cheese, or a breakfast sandwich. If you're coming for lunch, try a sandwich or wrap instead, perhaps with a cup of whichever soup the kitchen team decides to craft in-house that day.
