The Revenant Coffee House and Eatery
2301 NE 26th St., Fort Lauderdale; 954-947-7509; RevenantCoffee.com
With its baked-daily pastries, ambitiously crafted artisanal coffees, welcoming waterside patio and the stylish bearing of owner Matias Jurgeit (an Argentinean-born former model and actor who helped open the Alchemist in Wilton Manors), the Revenant inspired passionate word-of-mouth buzz seemingly from the moment its doors opened in April. Must try: the Eternal Revenant, hot Turkish-style coffee blended with grass-fed butter and organic coconut oil.
