Winter has officially arrived! There are few things the Hello Homes team loves more than a warm cup of coffee (Ok, maybe more than one some days). Where do we go to get our favorite cup of joe? Our HOT LIST will lead the way. Maybe we will see you there!
This Eastown staple has quirky names on its menu (The Ex-Boyfriend is my personal fave), a chill vibe, and doesn’t break the bank. Also, the windows are always mysteriously steamy so there MUST be something warm going on there.
Lantern is fairly new to the GR coffee scene but you wouldn’t know it by the taste. They make delicious cups of coffee and tea and are centrally located in the Heartside district of downtown. Wood tables and chairs give this place a relaxed and trendy feeling, perfect for casual or business meetings. It is a unique space because most of the seating is found on the lower level, which gives it a cozy, “underground” feel. And, they support local art!
If you don’t know Madcap, then allow us to officially rock your coffee world! Madcap is everything a coffee shop should be with floor-to-ceiling windows, music, concrete tables, and one-of-a-kind drinks. They offer exotic teas, exquisite pour-over coffee, and a fresh, private coffee label with numerous types of blends. Madcap isn’t where you go to get a grande-double-no whip-skinny-hazelnut-without water-extra foam latte. No. This is REAL coffee. You’ll thank us later (preferably in Madcap gift cards).
We like to think of Mayan Buzz as our little secret, but we know that won’t be true for long. Slightly hidden on Grandville Ave, this place has an extensive menu and it truly offers the flavor you crave without the high price tag. Plus, there’s a huge concrete fireplace and comfy furniture. Before you know it, one hour turns into a whole morning of productive-ness… and coffee. Or facebook-ing…. and coffee. Whatever you prefer to call it!
There you have it! You can often find us setting up shop at one of these exceptional establishments to get some work done. Give them a try! You don’t be disappointed.
