Coffee & Tea

Coffee shops and tea houses are the staple of communities — beloved gathering places where visitors and residents fuel up for their activities or pass the time in a convivial environment. Whether you are there for a late night of studying, remote work, a job interview, a chat with good friends or a rainy afternoon made perfect with a strong brew and a sweet treat — the coffee shop or teahouse is a welcoming place. Some of the local coffee shops host live entertainment and some of the tea shops are pair well with poetry readings or brisk urban stroll.

Expand your visit to include breakfast if the coffee shop offers sit down service. Others may be a drive-through or just wrap up breakfast sandwiches to go — ideal as you head to the park or off on a road trip.
