The corner spot of 6th Avenue and 12th Street that once held Joe Jr.'s Restaurant is now O Cafe, a Brazilian coffee shop. It's an airy space outfitted in light wood.
I stop by for the Latte Bahia ($4.50), named after a northeastern state in Brazil. Here dark chocolate meets a shot of espresso and steamed milk for a heady, full-bodied latte. The chocolate imparts dark, smoky notes. This is a decidedly rich—but not too sweet—concoction.
