After drinking coffee in different, random coffee shops, I came across the very famous Republic Coffee. I have heard about it, but never been to it until last Friday (04.15.11).
The music is very 90’s and the atmosphere is very eclectic. I sat down to do some work since they have free WiFi, it was very nice, it didn’t feel busy or like I was being rushed, not like the chained coffee shops out there. I found it to be very refreshing.
Founded in 2003 in Midtown Memphis. Republic is a privately owned and operated café. They have awesome, made from scratch food and as you walk in and you can smell a nice smooth coffee aroma.
I have been in a “Eat Local” kick and I have learned that local places have great food for great prices and great service.
