This place has the best location if you like spending time downtown. It is just off capital square, and provides a cozy environment. Best news yet is that February is their free expresso month. They give away one expresso per person per day. Due to tight quarters, it is not the place for a large group. They are known for their crepes made from the best ingredients (they even list the farms they buy from on their website). You won’t ever get bored with their rotating menu.
“In regards to coffee, we chose a roaster with similar values of sustainability, commitment to family, connection to the land, and some of our favorite moments have been experiencing coffee with them.” – Bradbury’s Coffee
