Farley's East is unpretentious but still offers some great espresso, fresh baked goods and a diverse selection of local resourced, made to order sandwiches and salads, including vegan options.
The upstairs loft area has a few tables and a booth that's great for a quiet magazine peruse over an artisan crafted latte. Their magazine and periodical collection is massive. Any interest you can think of, they've got it. The downstairs has a common table and barstools which are usually occupied by plugged in patrons grinding away on the computer. Wifi - Free. Music - Eclectic; not too loud and easy to enjoy or drown out.
They recently debuted a sidewalk patio with turf, planter boxes, tables and chairs. On a warm day, it's the perfect spot for people watching. During First Fridays they often have a band setup on the patio providing a soundtrack for the art walkers. Art work by local artists is showcased on the walls and rotated regularly.
It's my go to coffee shop because I find the vibe is always right no matter why I'm stopping in. It's a consistent staple, every change has only enhanced it's appeal.
Stop by the next time you're working on the weekend or catching up with a friend. I'll see you there!
