i was hooked on tall lattes with one raw sugar at starbucks. in fact, that’s what the downtown starbucks knew me as - tall latte w/1 raw sugar. i always thought that a latte is a latte is a latte. i’ve had lattes at other places and they are just as good as starbucks. i am sure that others will disagree. i’ve had them at jo’s cafe which doesn’t taste different, but has better atmosphere on south congress and i’ve had them at joe domingos, too. BUT, i then had a latte at via quadronno on e 73rd nyc…just as an after thought…for dessert after a great tuna salad…and…IT WAS THE BEST LATTE I HAD EVER HAD! in fact, as sister laura and i walked to the met, that’s all i kept saying, “THIS IS THE BEST LATTE, EVER!” if daughter michelle was with us, she would be telling me that i was talking too loud. but, it was the best latte…………..ever.
