Kind Coffee

kind-coffee-interiorKind Coffee is definitely a local’s hangout, with really good coffee–entirely Fair Trade and organic–that is roasted locally.  There is also a decent tea and baked goods selection, plus lots of great gift items, such as store-themed merchandise and funky purses.

The building is bright and airy, with lots of comfy seating at tables or on sofas.  There is also patio seating along the Riverwalk.  Grab a book at the Little Free Library or use the free Wi-Fi, and you can spend the whole afternoon.

Our only beef with Kind Coffee is that, despite the fact that it’s a local’s coffee shop, it’s never felt like home.  The baristas can be a bit aloof, and they never seem to recognize us, no matter how many times we go in.  Which is the exact opposite of our experience at the Starbucks just a half block away.  Go figure.
