The motto of this friendly coffeehouse in the heart of the Grove is “Coffee, peace, and justice for all.” It’s an ambitious goal, but we certainly feel more peaceful after an afternoon spent curled up here with a cup of local Sump coffee and a dish from their new breakfast and lunch menu.
Like a Pinterest dream come to life, with art and cozy furniture in every corner. Kiddos can make the most of the lively children's play area upstairs, home to a fort, toys, and more, while students and 9-to-5ers will appreciate the large study tables and ample electrical sockets.
Their Coffee for the People program, which allows customers to purchase a cup of coffee for someone else.
