This past weekend we explored our own town a little bit and discovered a new coffee shop to venture to, Downtown Credo. The first characteristic about this coffee shop that I noticed was the fact that the menu had "suggested donations", not "prices". It could be a completely new thing, or just new to me, but I found it so interesting that this shop chose to let the customer pick how much they wanted to pay.
Besides the price, this coffee shop had the makings for our favorite kind of atmosphere like local art on the walls, vintage and thrifted finds, mismatched furniture, and market lights. It wasn't too busy for a Sunday morning, and it's definitely a place I could see myself bring my laptop for when I get a bit stir crazy to blog or do some assignments.
Not to mention, the coffee was good. I had a standard coffee, while S satisfied his sweet tooth with a mocha cappuccino. I can always appreciate a place that does foam art because it's such a nice touch, as if it was made with more love and dedication.
It's always exciting when you think you know a town so well and you find a part of it that is new and different, a bit of a hidden gem. I think I will definitely be frequenting this place for a nice change of pace.
