Coffee lovers will find a haven at this downtown destination located in the back corner of Ice House. Your crafted beverage will be made with fresh roasted beans from a variety of local roasters, including Red Rooster Coffee, Lone Oak, and Lexington Coffee Roasters. For those customers who aren’t into coffee, they’ve got a wide range of loose leaf teas, cold press juices, and local kombuchas. Special beverages appear seasonally on the menu like Mexican hot cocoa and lavender lemonade. You’ll also find an extensive menu for both breakfast and lunch, featuring hot biscuits, quiches, fresh pressed paninis, and wraps. For customer’s looking to satisfy their sweet tooth, they have a daily, rotating case of house-made baked goods from pecan sandies to gluten-free muffins.
The shop is located in our town’s historic ice factory in a building built in 1934. The space boasts huge, floor-to-ceiling windows that allow light to filter in. Mixed-media art pieces, plants, and cool mismatched rugs fill up the concrete room, creating a warm, cozy environment. Outside you’ll find tables and chairs for enjoying nice weather and inside there’s a row of individual “stalls” that create space for those who prefer a quieter, private workspace. Others nestle into love seats, sofas, and tables built by the owner, Chance, take up the rest of the space. The counters in the shop are low, something specifically done to encourage interaction between customers and staff, something Chris felt was important to the community he wanted to foster.
This is a place where people gather – community groups and collaborators crowd around a large table; students and freelancers spend hours working here, and friends connect. It’s a calm place for catching up with a good book, opening up your laptop, or running into folks around town.
