Lestats Coffee Shop is a must see for those who are interesting in the eclectic and trendy social setting. The shop offers significant eye candy that tantalizes the eye with art, knick knacks, and every manner of self-expressing visitor. Upon arrival one will be drawn to the café style patio that affords a European setting on a busy street. The scene doesn’t change once stepping inside as walls filled with art, a fire place, and mismatched furniture draws the eye.
Wherever one’s eyes set they will find a gargoyle, a few dusty books, or art for sale to ponder on. Even walking around the coffee shop there will be a level of excitement as you take in the various colors and patterns of local artists trying to make a few dollars off of their hard work. A visitor won’t find the carbon copy cleanliness of your local Starbucks but will enjoy the eclectic styles of the local bohemian community.
In the middle of the night, after a hard evening of adventure, or in the wee hours of the morning rushing to work Lestat’s is open 24 hours a day and seven days a week. During the daylight hours it may be hard to find a table but in the late evening the crowd becomes a little sparser. To your amazement you might find a young couple who doesn’t want the night to end or an old hipping singing a tune to himself in remembrance of the days of social love.
Food and beverage choices are cheap due the desire to price products within the range that local college students can afford. Most items are under 10 dollars and offer sandwiches, pasta salad, bagels and quiche. Five to six different coffees are available under $2.00 and blueberry scones for less than $3.00. This is a place for quick food and conversation so visitors shouldn’t expect a fine dining atmosphere.
With the discount price comes hours of internet access and lots of ear filling commotion. On one side of the room will be students studying statistics while on the other side there may be a young mother telling her new boyfriend how much she dislikes her husband. Just about anything goes in a place like this. Tie to t-shirt everyone appears to be welcome and accommodated.
