Whether one is looking for a peaceful place to get homework done, somewhere to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee, or wanting to grab something on-the-go, Crow’s Coffee located on 535 E. Red Bridge Rd. is the place to go to.

The Red Bridge Shopping Center location of Crow’s Coffee is the newest edition to the local chain, with two other locations on the south Plaza and another in Waldo. The coffee bar is open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m daily and is only three minutes away from campus, making it a convenient spot to go before, after, or even during school for seniors.

The shop features ambient lighting that reflects off the brick and wood panels as well as the teal and burnt sienna painted walls. There is ample amount of space which provides room for comfortable wooden chairs and tables. The local coffee shop’s earthy atmosphere is also due to the plentiful amount of outside seating which is a rare find at most coffee shops. Another bonus is the long table in front of the folding windows that they open when weather permits so enjoyment of the lingering smell of coffee and fresh air are both possible.

Crow’s Coffee is unique because of its vibe. Unlike most coffee shops, it is very inviting and peaceful leaving customers with a more personal experience. There is also faint mellow music which creates a tranquil setting. A healthy flow of people of all ages come in and out the shop. Most of the customers come to stay, looking for a place to do work, talk over drinks or even enjoy a board game with their friends.
