A New Brew
Just about a month ago I fortuitously met Sufi, the owner of MyWayCup Coffee, on 23rd and Park. He and his partner Halo were perusing through Fishs Eddy, selecting vintage cups when the hand-painted Alice in Wonderland sign caught Sufi's eye. He asked how much it was but was promptly informed by a sales associate that "it's not for sale." In attempts to keep this customer happy, when I returned from lunch I was summoned over and introduced to Sufi & Halo as "the girl who painted the sign." Within moments they were describing their cafe to me and the creative visions they had for the bare walls.
After a few late nights and numerous cups of cappuccino, the cafe is now open but decidely incomplete. (There is talk of me coming back to paint a few more graphics) MyWayCup is a place that certainly brings a bit of charm to the otherwise commercial 23rd street and the coffee is so good that it's actually worth going out of MyWay to get it.
