An interview with Hi-Life Cafe chef-partner Carlos Fernandez is presented. When asked about the usual drink that perks him up, he refers to the sugar-free Red Bull, which he loves drinking every day. However, to start the day, Fernandez drinks coffee, particularly the Starbucks Verona blended in a French press. He comments that Hi-Life has become a quintessential neighborhood bistro that can seat 65 persons.
