Our vibrant community is energetic by nature but helped along by a wealth of caffeine and sugar. Coffee shops are constantly buzzing with friends discussing politics over locally-roasted coffee, busy freelancers, and makers hard at work in the inspiring atmosphere (powered by a vegan doughnut or two), and visitors trying a unique new latte flavor before a day downtown. And while we love the hustle, we also believe in indulgence, and the importance of taking a moment to savor a bar of locally-made salted caramel chocolate, or a cone of homemade ice cream on a sunny day.
