Yesterday, sporadically, I kicked off my local coffeehouse tour. I was taking my daughter to an appointment and needed somewhere to wait. I looked up and saw Café Eclectic. I walked in and was immediately greeted by the friendly barista, Chrislond. I told him it was my first time there and he began to give me a well informed run down of all of the wonderful things they offered.
I wanted to venture out and try something different. But, I am really a coffee and Frappuccino type of girl. I tried a flat white once and it was not my thing. Chrislond suggested the Cappuccino with caramel. It would still give me that coffee taste but, with something different. Plus, I like caramel. I could have gotten vanilla but, I’d already had a cup of joe before I left home with French vanilla creamer. They had cinnamon rolls and a haul of other goodies on the counter made in house. I chose the bacon and cheese bread. It was so, so GOOD I want one right now as I am typing this!
They serve breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. They have the bakery, kids menu, and a soda fountain. There are vegan friendly choices. I am definitely going back to try the famous cinnamon roll and the brioche French toast for brunch. It would also make a nice place for lunch when in the area.
I was very pleased with my cappuccino as it was my first time having one that was not instant. It was made by another barista who’s name I did not catch but, welcomed me there as well. Good food and coffee is awesome but, when you add great customer service on top of that it’s a win-win for me. It’s a gold medal performance.
