    It's been the best of times, it's been the worst of times, and now it has finally come to an end. For my last week as your official bar buddy, I felt I had to do something beyond the ordinary. Over the semester, I've been to Southside, Shadyside, North Shore, and everywhere in between. There was one place however that I had yet to tackle: Mount Washington.

So, I found myself in Lawrenceville at Coca Café, a small restaurant whose breakfast packs quite the punch.
