Coming from one of the top coffee towns in the U.S., you should expect something pretty serious for your taste buds; Public Domain will never let you down. It’s some serious bare bones, heart-of-hearts stuff. The décor may be a little too slick for some (a bit like an Apple store with fewer employees) but it seems to put the focus on what it should. Damn fine coffee. And it’s not a bad place to get caught in a photo, either.
