For a community as artistic and culturally diverse as Jamaica Plain, it's a shame there aren't more — nay, any — quality coffee shops on the area's main drag for creative types to chill. But head over to the Brewery Complex where Ula Café resides amid the Samuel Adams HQ and relocated Bella Luna/Milky Way. It's a tight little spot with a vibe like it was transported from downtown Portsmouth. The baristas are laid back while dispensing liquid joys like Russian Caravan tea and Maté Mocha coffee. The revolving cast of homemade soups and stellar sandwiches isn't too shabby, either.
