Handsome Coffee is open downtown
Handsome Coffee, the roastery and cafe, opened Saturday morning in downtown's Arts District in an airy former print shop converted by owners Michael Phillips, Tyler Wells and Chris Owens. The streamlined menu includes espresso or espresso with milk in 3, 5 or 10 ounces (they've skipped the Italian nomenclature, but think macchiato, cappuccino and latte, respectively). There's also brewed coffee, pastries from Proof Bakery in Atwater Village and plenty of seating. (Take note: There's no sugar for your coffee here, and Handsome doesn't serve decaf.)
