Best thing going in Eugene: Perk Coffee and Espresso

Perk Coffee and Espresso: Cold extract Cafe Pacori coffee cut with coconut milk. Lemon Meringue Pie from Nib with black- capped waves of foam licking at the edge of the plate. A sidewalk table across from the fire station, Eugene feels like a real city to me for the first time in years. Gnarled oaks sweep up from the concrete, sandwiched in between the tattoo shop and vintage hipster clothing store. At 2PM the place is quiet and a breeze rills up Willamette Street and the light winks down through the trees.

Pie from Perk Espresso

I’m torn between convincing you to go, and telling you to stay away.
