This is my favorite downtown coffee place. It's cozy, not a chain, make great coffee and espresso drinks, not a chain, friendly owners and baristas, not a chain, and on top of everything else, it's not a chain! Seriously--well-crafted lattes and mochas, a nice variety of brewed coffees and teas, a few pastries. It's on the skyway system, although a little off the beaten path--right above Kieran's Pub, at 2nd Ave. and 4th St. By the way, the name is a pun, of course, but it also refers to the sisters (triplets) who own the place. They also have a location on Bloomington Ave. in south Minneapolis. Check them out!
Pros: Great coffee, friendly service, not a chain
Cons: A little farther to walk from many downtown locations
