Keko Cafe — 70.7 decibels CLOSED

Keko Cafe is a restaurant/coffee shop featuring breakfast all day, sandwiches, and Tunisian couscous and salads.   It was absolutely serene for the first ten minutes of our visit, with the sound meter hovering around 67 decibels.  The reading was impressive given that the cafe occupies a small space and was about half full.  Then, sadly, someone turned on the background music.  The volume wasn’t that loud, but the selection had an urgency that didn’t jibe with what had been a peaceful Friday morning.  We could have asked to have them lower the music, but opted not to as we had stopped by for a quick coffee and our visit was going to be short.  That said, even with the background music the place was pretty comfortable.

Given the neighborhood, which is short on good, independent restaurants and coffee shops and long on national chains, Keko Cafe is probably your best shot for a civilized meal or coffee break (and the coffee was good).
