Is there anything as therapeutic as a free cup of coffee? Pair that hot mug of goodness with a plate of tiramisu or white chocolate mango cake, and you've got more restorative healing on one plate than ten therapists' couches combined.Sure, some folks like to resort to things like hypnosis, dance therapy, or stressball-squeezing to relieve a little tension. But is there anything as therapeutic as a free cup of coffee? The curative powers of joe never fail to heal me of my worldly woes, at least momentarily. Pair that hot mug of goodness with a plate of tiramisu or white chocolate mango cake, and you've got more restorative healing in one plate than ten therapists' couches combined. Therapy Lounge dishes out its pick-me-ups in a cozy lounge atmosphere, complete with cocktails, hookahs, and a full line of pastries for your, er, mental health. (But if you still need a little extra therapy, there are a couple plush couches you can sprawl out upon.)
Therapy's Ethiopian drip coffee is bright and fragrant, a perfect (and perfectly free) tonic to savor in the early morning, or as an afternoon reviver, or perhaps later in the evening pre- or post-Sazerac at Therapy's bar. Their fresh salads and sandwiches are perfect midday remedies, but the desserts they bring in from a high-end local pastry chef are nothing short of exquisite: think raspberry chocolate mousse, creme brulee, white mango cake, and perfect little fruit tarts to supplement that curative joe. Add a Sazerac and maybe a guava hookah, and... well, that's just what the doctor ordered.
