Creative and unique vegan friendly coffee

Posted on 11 / 09 / 2014

What's not to love about this place? Ok, maybe the wait for your coffee as you stand in a long line reading through a book of a menu. Or, maybe it's the small sizes of 6 or 12 oz. that makes a caffeine-addict feel guilty or "called out" because you want to really order 2 12 oz. drinks?

Other than that, this place is incredible in its attention to the coffee, the coffee, the coffee. The baristas are on point and talented individuals who give the care and attention to your beverage as would a fine chef in a restaurant. I don't know how they keep it all in order!

Some of the espresso signature drinks have dairy already incorporated (chocolate), or honey, but there are some easily vegan with almond or soy milk. Delicious delicious delicious. I was impressed with how they have these beautiful creations to choose from, rather than just a simple latte or mocha. Thanks for this, Cocoa Cinnamon!

The baked goods are locally made, and in small selection. However, there was one vegan item, a brownie, and it also happened to be gluten-free. It was good! They have other prepared food items to purchase like chocolate bars, but other than that, this place is really just about the coffee!

Pros: Almond milk, Incredible espresso drink blends, Vegan gluten free baked goods
Cons: Small beverage sizes

vegan/gluten-free options

Posted on 04 / 15 / 2014

Along with excellent espresso/coffee drinks they always have a few options of vegan baked goods and sometimes savory items.
As of April 2014, they were selling a local baker's goodies (Joie de Vegan) like brownies, cakes, and muffins, which are all 100% vegan/gluten-free.
Love supporting this place and the great community they foster.

Pros: vegan options, great espresso with creative options, community-minded owners
Cons: can get very busy with long waits
