We went in to Matchstick after lunch at Sol Y Limon. We had coffee and split a double baked almond Croissant with our friends. It was excellent. The coffee was hearty. Service is at the counter.

I loved the coffee here. It's a bit on the pretentious side, but the coffee is undeniably good. In a city filled with good, independent coffee places, Matchstick stands out. it's a good place to hand out, but not a place for a meal.
