Coffee at Shangri-la

Nestled within one of the hippest streets in the Highlands neighborhood, is Shangri-La Coffee, a cafe that offers much more than a monoculture Starbucks may offer.  The drink menu at Shangri-La is culturally diverse with real Lavazza Italian coffee, India inspired Bhakti and Third St. Chai, and the classic “London Fog” tea-based latte made with Early Grey tea, steamed milk, and a shot of vanilla flavored syrup.

Shangri-La offers freshly made salads, award-winning panini’s, and even gluten-free dolce (a.k.a. desserts) that outdo any prepackaged pastry, sweet bread, or sandwich at Starbucks.  The list of paninis seems endless.  The paninis are all made with the finest meats and cheeses, often rooted in the Italian cuisine that the owner and chef Massimo Ruffinazzi grew up eating.

For a cultural experience that expands outside the monoculture of Starbucks, make your way to Shangri-La.  Massimo will greet you with a smile and a “Prego,” (a.k.a. How may I help you?), wafting you away to a different land.
