Your afternoon wake-up call with a touch of sweetness, all rolled into one. Meet The Mountie ($4.50) from Jack's Stir Brew in the West Village. A triple ristretto with steamed milk and maple syrup. Shakes of cinnamon to top. A little coffee, a little dessert. Come on the weekdays, in the afternoon, and you won't have to worry about a lack of tables. Book in hand, warm mug on the table: it's one of life's lovely simple pleasures.
