- On the corner of St. Mary's and Woodlawn is a little coffee shop popular with students of nearby San Antonio College and Trinity University. On any given weekday morning, the scene inside can consist of lone readers boning up on last night's reading assignment, local professionals and uniformed Navy recruiters from next door. The atmosphere is completely relaxed, the colors tranquilly stylish. In the post-coffeehouse craze era, places like Cafe Latino bring back memories of why they were so popular in the early 90s, when it seemed like a new one opened every week. A selection of books is available to catch up on your reading about Cesar Martinez or Sandra Cisneros. Besides serving up a great cup of joe, the cafe offers sweetbreads and empanadas for a quick snack before class. Have some great Central American coffee the traditional way--with cinnamon.
