Coffee Shop

“Hands down my favorite coffee place in MN. This is such a cute spot with amazing vibes! Ample seating, lots of natural light, a very comfy feel inside. A selection of drink choices for both the coffee and non-coffee lover. Try the SpyGirl latte (lavender and honey) or any of their lattes. All the drinks I've tried were delicious and what's even better is that they work with local and organic food businesses whenever possible.”
