When you go by the small, colorful building at the corner where Cedar meets King College in Bristol, you can understand that this could certainly be a coffee spot. And it is, but it also is so much more. Owner Sonya Powers has managed to get the coffee spot she opened last autumn turned into a drive-thru breakfast and lunch place that also does catering and prepares great BBQ. I know, hard to believe – but she utilizes all the available space, works it to the fullest and presents a nice product.
Not that she has let coffee take a back seat. Her flavor collection is now up to 60, and with six types of milk at her disposal, she can whip up the most delectable specialty coffees, cappuccinos, americanos, breve and cortadas. Breakfast sandwiches include a variety of toppings and can come on a croissant, a bagel, a biscuit or just regular bread – most of which she bakes herself. Coming by for lunch? You have to try her homemade chicken salad or her pimento cheese, both personal recipes made on premises. For catering, she does her own BBQ using her specialty rub – a totally unique approach – in a process that takes almost 5 days. I tried it and fell in love with it! She’ll prepare almost anything from stuffed peppers to lasagna to a homemade apple pie. Let your imagination take over, but while you’re doing that, have my favorite, a cappuccino. As the saying goes, you’ll be glad you did!
