Built in the '20s, the space that houses Hillman City cafe Tin Umbrella was formerly a furniture shop, then a gambling den. One of the giant, weathered carpentry tables from the space's early days now serves as a cream and sugar station. The cafe offers boozy miniature pies from It's Pie Life (you will want seven of them) and soft biscotti from Chilelli Foods. They're also sponsoring a storm drain through the city's Adopt-a-Drain program, which they've named Dwayne the Drain (awesome owner Joya Iverson has a sense of humor).
