If you walked too fast down Oak, you could zoom right past this hole in the wall where the construction of cappuccinos is truly an art. With well-curated art installations, the occasional Japanese shave ice pop-up, and grade A people-watching of the choicest tourists in town, a sunny table for two out front is among the best places to take a break from the downtown bustle.
