Honey Moon Coffee Co.

Their coffee is top notch!

Derick Brattain, 14News Editor

I am not in the UE neighborhood all that often, but when I am, I like to stop by Honey Moon Coffee if there’s open parking. Not only is the coffee delicious (I usually pick a latte or a macchiato), but I like the whole vibe of the place.  You can get a little breakfast there too. Even my kids dig it.

-Jackie Monroe, 14News Anchor

I love the atmosphere. Super adorable inside. They have really cool looking waffles- they look like bubbles! And really good siracha aioli sauce. 

– Melissa Ethridge, 14News Sales Coordinator

The waffles!

-Nichole Tsimekles, 14News Senior Digital Sales Specialist

I like that they don’t charge extra for almond milk and that after tax, it is exactly $2.

The Tiny Dancer iced coffee is my absolute favorite. Their breakfast sandwiches are amazing as well.

Every morning before work, I enjoy a cinnamon roll and coffee for roughly 30-45 minutes of relax time.

White Swan Coffee Lab

I recently discovered White Swan Coffee Lab. The lavender vanilla latte is really good and they have eco-friendly straws. Seems to be a good place to bring a laptop and work!
