Rebecca's Coffee House

Every neighborhood should have a coffee house like this, a high-ceilinged room about 40 feet by 50 feet, full of eclectic antique chairs, couches, and tables. Old-timey windows look out on the busy corner of Juniper and Fern in the hip-yet-homey hamlet of South Park. Local artists’ paintings festoon the walls. Local acts play on the moderately sized stage most nights of the week. The coffee is good and well-made. Deli-style made-to-order sandwiches are just what they should be. The smell of fresh baked goods wafts from the kitchen all day and makes the place feel like a cozy home away from home, particularly on cool days. I love the chocolate banana muffins, and the chocolate cake is straight up awesome. But the scones Rebecca bakes… oh my goodness… golden crusted, steamy-centered perfection.

I used to always go to this place when M-Theory Records used to be across the street. I hardly ever go there now.

I love their pastries, but their sandwiches are also great. And a good value, too.

A few times, they've messed up my sandwich order. On one occasion, they never even made the bagel sandwich I ordered, as my friends got their food, I just sat there. But, they made it up to us by bringing cookies and brownies. That was cool with us.

It's got a huge dining room area, so the geeks that want to sit their working on their laptops can do that.

And, if you're going to go across the street to do some drinking at the popular Whistle Stop, this is the place to go to fill your belly first.
