☕ River City roasts: Extra Fine

👋 Megan here. I was in need of a little extra caffeine boost last week after a morning appointment and sought out a nearby coffee shop.

Dig in: Extra Fine offers coffees, teas, food and baked goods in an elevated, neighborhood cafe style in Monte Vista.

What to try: The orange tonic espresso ($5), offered seasonally for about another month.

  • The bright, citrusy flavor cuts the bitterness of the espresso, making this a refreshing cold coffee option that isn't sweet.
  • Plus, you can never go wrong with a hot drip coffee at Extra Fine.

🍽️ Best bites: If you're stopping in for some remote work and need a snack, try the green goddess crispy potatoes ($10.50) — perfectly crispy bites served with preserved lemon ricotta, arugula and Parmesan.

  • You'll be happy to eat your greens when they're served this way.

What's next: Extra Fine's second location is expected to open downtown at the Savoy Building by early summer.
