A name like Handsome Coffee Roasters doesn't provide much aesthetic leeway, does it? The new coffee shop in the Arts District really had no choice but to manifest itself in a charming and attractive manner. In the hands of WoodSmithe, a woodworking and design studio on the other side of the L.A. River, traditional cafe materials have become a refreshing expression of craft - including an unusual wood tile that's truly living up to the Handsome name. For a hint that Handsome Coffee is not your typical cafe, simply look at the menu: only three drinks - no exceptions - and no sugar on the premises.

PITTSBURGH - Jon Rubin had an important question, and he knew where to find the answer: at the North Korean Embassy in Cuba, which he was visiting in March on a business trip. A man in jogging clothes and flip-flops came to the embassy gate after Rubin and his small entourage of fellow Americans rang the doorbell at the ornate diplomatic mission on a tree-lined street in Havana's Vedado neighborhood. The Americans posed the question: What exactly do they eat in North Korea?
