Strong Badger Coffeehouse

Earlier this week a friend of mine posted on Facebook that he had gone on vacation and come back to a new coffee shop at the end of the street. I looked at the picture and saw the name Strong Badger. I knew I needed to visit as soon as possible. I first encountered Brock the owner of The Strong Badger Coffeehouse when I covered the Outdoor Community Cafe at Knox United. He was serving iced coffee at the time and…Continue readingStrong Badger Coffeehouse

Despite having a smaller crowd, most of the food vendors were in full swing. I stopped for lunch at Simba Safari Grill and followed it up with a beverage from Little Sister Coffee Maker. Little Sister Coffee Maker is an offshoot of Parlour…Continue readingLittle Sister Coffee Maker

Parlour Coffee Main Street North

I originally wrote this post about Parlour Coffee about a year and a half ago.  I wrote it for bubsblurbs, my other, no longer extant, blog, but thought that it belonged here.  Obviously some of the things in the post have changed, but the coffee from Parlour is still every bit as excellent.
