Coffee Shop

Café
“Bohemeos is a coffee bar and cafe during the day, and a live music venue at night. The lobby doubles as an art gallery and the exhibits change monthly. All their coffees are hand ground and brewed via slow-drip. It’s the best coffee place on the east side, and a great place for business meetings, brunch, or a quiet solo place to work away from the office. Sit outside on the patio and listen to their water fountain; it’s really peaceful! ”
