Over in the Latin Quarter, Café Big Trouble offers a nostalgic nod to the '90s with homemade comfort food and a community-forward ethos. Surrounded by rising rents and franchise dominance, this spot’s fusion of childhood and European classics—think viennoiseries, poutine, and specialty coffees amid eclectic decor—make this a winner. Partners Alexander Levi, Madeleine Stuyt, and Melissa Mastrocola have crafted a haven where creativity flourishes here, echoing Turbo Haus's mission to nurture musicians.
