They've been working on this for several months and their opening's moved back one month, as they first said it would be in February....I'm excited about this, and am anxious for it to open!

That would be Walnut & 6th. Not Liberty St.   ;)

Good for Springfield I hope they support this.  I am always skeptical about a coffee house without a drive through. I like the walk in atmosphere but the window will make the money.

When you think about it, most of the decent coffee shops don't have a drive thru. Just like the place on the next block, Tommy's does a fantastic business and they're not drive thru. This new one will have a different variety on it's menu and it's decor looks to be inviting for people to sit and relax....so this will draw a different crowd.

I live just down the street and have been watching the progress made, I've met the gentlemen who own it and it's very tastefully done...this will be a great asset to our neighborhood!

That's a nice looking building - how come we haven't knocked it down yet?

I agree the better coffee houses do not seem to have drive thrus. I just want one because I work but I do not live in the area.

I'm sure you'll be able to get in and out quick enough....and if it turns out to be as good as it sounds, it might be worth leaving the house a few minutes earlier....know what I mean?

Funny you should mention that....when the city takes forever to knock down the ones that really need to go and level the ones that don't.

That used to be a church, believe it or not....and once they get things really settled in, they'll have the patio out back to enjoy.

With all due respect, that kind of strip mall thinking is exactly what's wrong with this place. For a lively residential neighborhood to develop, a corner coffee joint (and other businesses) should only cater to the nearby residents and the walk in crowd. Leave your car at home. Please! ;)

When we get that commuter train out to Fleming Island I promise to leave the car at home.  I hope I wasn't overly critical I had the Coffee shop across from panther creek close and that was bad for my commute. I went in but lots of people didn't and now it's the gas station in the morning for me.

It's not really a coffee house, it's more a quick breakfast shop...Tommys at 1540 Walnut....the 'breakfast in a bowl' or something like that...it's good, quick breakfast food.
