What's on the counter at Café Haiti:

Food: An Icelandic pastry/donut called a kleinur.
Drink: A fair-trade Haitian roast, with a touch of milk and agave nectar

Café Haiti is owned by a Haitian woman named Elda, who imports her beans directly from Haiti and roasts them herself every day. I had read a bit about her and didn't really expect to actually see her, but I suppose if you roast your own beans on a daily basis, that probably means you are going to be there every day. She had a quiet presence and a kind soul and while we didn't share many words, I enjoyed being in her company.
