About Us

Lattes, Literature, Community.

We opened our doors in the historic Portland Neighborhood of Louisville in September 2014. We offer local drinks and treats from Good Folks Coffee, Elmwood Inn Fine Teas, Georgia’s Sweet Potato Pie Co., and Payne Street Bakehouse. Our shop serves as a warm and safe place for all of our community to nourish their ideas and dreams and provides a respite from all the windmills of the world.
