The Buzz: Rooster & Moon Coffee Pub

January 11 2010, 9:51 AM
Every neighborhood needs a good coffeeshop---sometimes two or three. And as of late November, the Golden Triangle's Dazbog and Metropolis Coffee have found competition in the new Rooster & Moon Coffee Pub on Bannock Street. The tucked-away shop specializes in organic java (Allegro) and tea (Vail Mountain Coffee & Tea Co.) and serves baked goods from City Bakery and made-to-order salads and sandwiches. Even with winter tomatoes, the hot caprese sandwich---smeared with pesto and stacked with melted, fresh mozzarella and tomato slices---tastes robust. The Addison offers heartier bites, with roast turkey, Swiss cheese, honey mustard, lettuce, tomato, and a drizzle of virgin olive oil. Bonus: Ample electrical outlets aside, the modern and sleek space doubles as a bar. So, take your pick---caffeine or alcohol---and belly up. 955 Bannock St., 303-933-2622
