Foursquare Tips

  • Historic, with great java, vibe and place to relax and/or work The Buckeye Latte is the way to go! (via @elatlboy)
  • Tip your hard working baristas! They put love in yo dranks.
  • Best coffee in Lexington. The Grasshopper or Zebra are some of my favorites. The atmosphere is classic and depending on the day, you might get some great entertainment too. Hipster central.
  • Support Local Roasters!
  • The white hot chocolate is amazing :)
  • Go to the room in the back. It has a shelve full of books for $2! The money goes to the International Book Project, an organization that promotes literacy in developig countries.
  • Chocolate muffins are amazing,
  • Great smoothies!
  • Monday nights: open mic.
  • Try Lexington Coffee & Tea at Third Street Stuff or Nate's Coffee at North Lime Donuts. They're local roasters, and don't taste like burnt beans coated in flavoring that's been sitting in a warehouse.
  • Used to be a place worth going to, but lost its sheen in recent years with the "renovations" and constant turnover in staffing.
  • I like the Grasshopper.
  • Open mic night
  • Great coffee!!
  • Great atmosphere! My latte was average: it's not bad, but it's not the best either.
  • The cold brew genuinely surprised me!
  • Great place to grab a coffee and do some reading.
  • Blended chai with soy milk!
  • Go here to find a special surprise in the window.
  • Try one of their many delicious lattes and curly up on a cozy couch with your favorite book. Open mic every monday night!
