I think I can start to understand why people who come here take pictures of their coffee. It’s not every coffeehouse that puts that cute little finishing touch design on top of their drinks. I’ve come to a place full to the brim with art and the desire for creativity. I think I’ve said it before, but that is one of my favorite things about local coffee shops. They all have their unique aesthetic and a charm most big chains can’t beat.
The lighting is soft and perfect. Not jarringly bright and good for working under. There’s a mini lamp at my table, which is a perfect laptop size. Outlets all around. The wifi password up for everyone to see. As I sit here, typing, I notice the instrumental music that is also different than the music that plays at every other cafe. It does change later, to 80s, so they’re not limited to certain music. A little detail that varies with different people, but matters especially to me, even in the frigid cold outside, the interior is warm, and I am comfortable.
I sip at a delicious raspberry mocha, and everything here just feels right. I decided to try one of their loose leaf teas which they have a nice variety of, and it is delicious. They also have food for those days you want to just hang around in one place. Get your food, coffee/tea, atmosphere, and get some writing done.
