The best part of waking up?
Depends on what’s in your cup. Starting today, it’s Lamill. The boutique coffee roaster’s Silver Lake outpost is now open.
Toile walls, embossed-croc chairs, and tables for two are lit by gold chandeliers. But the main attraction? The drinks: espresso shots (19 grams, 165°, 8.75 bar, 1.75 ounce), French press, and Clover cups for the purists; rosemary water with coffee spheres and Coffee and a Cigarette (cafe con panna with tobacco-infused whipped cream) for the avant garde.
Lunchtime brings Providence chef Michael Cimarusti’s savories like pumpkin soup with coffee maple Urfa chile creme fraiche; frisee aux lardon with coffee vinaigrette; and Asian pork belly with arugula, tomato, and preserved black beans, a.k.a. ABLT.
With goods like this, better make it a double.
Lamill Coffee, 1636 Silver Lake Boulevard, between Effie Street and Berkeley Avenue, Silver Lake (323-663-4441 or lamillcoffee.com).
