Located within the Art Museum parkway district is Retro Coffee, a cafe with a humanitarian, artistic flair, and packed with reading materials. The main decorative theme here is the bookshelves lining the walls and filled with little decorative items like coffee mugs and CDs. These are all visible through the cafe's big, clear windows. This place has two floors, connected by stairs also lined with decorations and books that you can peruse at will. Beverages are mostly coffees, but also include a variety of teas, beers and chocolate milk. Retro also offers simple meals like panini sandwiches, salads and handmade cookies. Besides popular Italian coffees like espresso and latte, there are gourmet coffees made with certified coffee beans, or ones carefully chosen from coffee gardens. What's more, there is live music on Saturdays and Sundays. Feel free to drop by and savor some snacks and coffee with a variety of musical styles, from jazz to country and rock, by bands and individuals. --By Jasmine, translated by Ann Lee
