It all depends on how you take your coffee. I like mine with a dash or two of live music and a couple of lumps of poetry. So when I feel the need for speed, or at least for caffeine, I head over to Warehaus 57 (1904 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, 954-926-6633). Near the entrance local musicians play acoustic sets, framed by the plate glass storefront. Talk about window-dressing. The rear of the cafe is actually a used-book store and bizarre-clothing emporium, where most of the items seem to be made out of chain mail. In other words, you can find a tome on medieval knights and look like one, too -- a knight, that is. All while you sip an espresso and nibble a cookie. Can't beat that for eclectic culture.
