Located across the street from the farmer's market in hoppin' Lowertown, Black Dog Coffee and Wine Bar's warehouse space is bright and airy, with a high ceiling and lots of light. In a neighborhood infused with the arts, the Black Dog follows suit with walls covered in works by local artists. It also hosts poetry readings and throws a killer block party. An ideal urban coffeehouse featuring locally roasted blends, this is also a nice lunch destination with sandwiches, soups, salads, and pizzas focusing on local produce. Black Dog has a fine happy hour (daily 4-7 p.m.) with a good beer selection and lovely wine list. Try one of the pizzas with fresh basil and three toppings for $11.95. Sidewalk seating in the summertime.
