Located in the heart of the warehouse district, Halcyon is a perfectly eclectic mix of neighborhood coffee bar and comfortable lounge. Open from 7am to 2am during the week, Halcyon is that spot that has just what you’re in the mood for at all hours of the day.

In our opinion, the best time of all to visit Halcyon is for dessert.   Haven’t you ever gone out to dinner and wished for a change of scenery to grab something sweet?  Well, this is your place.  Halcyon’s dark, quiet interior and indoor/outdoor feel is the perfect setting to satisfy your sweet tooth while enjoying some downtown people-watching. 

They offer a selection of cakes and pies, including 4 layer chocolate ganache or classic tiramisu, and crepes like bananas foster or nutella with toasted walnuts.  What they’re best known for, though, is tableside s’mores.  At just $6.50 for a 2-person serving, you can cap off your night with an inexpensive, delicious, and fun treat.

In addition to their yummy desserts, Halcyon offers specialty espresso cocktails.  The Cosmonaut is their version of the classic white Russian, and they even have a Long Island Iced Coffee (with a 2-drink limit!).  Their signature drink is the chocolate espresso martini with stoli vanil, Godiva chocolate, and house espresso.

Even their non-alcoholic drinks are a bit quirky, like this latte with animal crackers on the side.
