Small Company Coffee is like sitting in a hot tub on vacation. The layout is, ahem, unusual. The entrance is through a set of black glass doors, and the seats are arranged in a long rectangle with everybody facing each other. There are quite a few signature coffee drinks to explore, like the Sea Salt Pepper Cream coffee and Ginger Beer Black coffee, but the regular latte is lovely enough as-is. Pleasant, not strong enough to make your heart race, good for the afternoon or early evening. At night, it turns into Bar Lotus.
