Crestwood Coffee is off the beaten path, located in a nondescript shopping center, with a small dining room that fills up quickly during lunch hours. So why would we highly encourage you to make a visit? Because, you can’t always judge a book by its cover. Over the years the owners have put a lot of thought into their food options and have developed a gourmet selection of breakfast, lunch, and weekend brunches. With menu items ranging anywhere from light brunch options to Cajun and Creole style and good ol’ Southern comfort foods, you can’t go wrong visiting Crestwood Coffee any time of the day, not just for your morning brew. What Makes it Great It has been said that “they’re no longer just a coffee shop with some pastries on the side, they are a full on Bistro,” and the statement is an accurate one. Their menu of tasty sandwiches, salads and breakfasts is one of the best in town. The brunch menu changes weekly and they rotate through their recipes of over 60 soup choices, with three options each day. Lunch options are plenty, such as soups perfect for a rainy day: Black Bean Chipotle Soup, Matzo Ball Soup, African Peanut Soup and Beer Cheese Soup. Or try their recent special of Shrimp and Andouille Jambalaya, or Chicken and Dumplings, or Muffelettas. For breakfast, grab a crispy pastry or finger-licking quiche. Wine and beer is available with your meal, but then there’s the coffee… Crestwood Coffee brews beans from one of the coolest roasters in town: Red Bike Coffee. Run by avid cyclists who started with a passion for good coffee and a small table top roaster, they have turned their passion into a thriving business. In addition to being available in local retail stores around town, they are the exclusive provider of beans for Crestwood Coffee. Who is Going to Love It Crestwood Coffee is the perfect place to have a business lunch, bring your laptop and work in solitude, grab a friend for good conversation, or carry a book for a peaceful read. This little shop is ideal for simply anyone that has an appetite at all, loves good food, is in the mood for a good cup of coffee, or all of the above. Kids will find yummy menu items and adults will appreciate the variety. Groups are welcome, and with outdoor seating, Crestwood Coffee won’t run out of room. Take a minute or two to check out the art on the walls, then pick a table and stick around a while. Directions, Parking and Fees From I-59 S/I-20 E, take exit 132 onto HWY 11 S.
