Yes, this is the same coffee shop that was on Southwest Blvd. for years. They moved earlier this summer to Waldo, to be part of the renaissance taking place there. The new locale is next to Kennedy’s in the modern energy-efficient building on 75th St. that Dianne Botwin developed.
It’s a very cool structure, with lots of glass, metal and wood–very 21st Century, and very unlike the building that stood on that spot before fire destroyed it in 2007. One of the things I like most is that it was designed to allow the outside in. The glass walls can be pushed aside so customers feel as though they are on a patio and can enjoy some fresh air before going back to the office or home.
But this is not just another pretty face. The coffee at Coffee Girls is very smooth and tasty. Though I am far from a coffee aficionado and usually drink tea in the mornings, the standard for me is whether I need to add a sweetener (to make it taste like my beloved coffee ice cream). This coffee didn’t need a thing.
Non-coffee drinkers will enjoy the fresh juices and smoothies, comforted in the knowledge that the latter are made with non-fat yogurt. Light breakfast items are offered as well, along with sandwiches and salads for lunch. Though many of the sandwiches will satisfy carnivores, the menu is heavy on offerings that will make vegetarians particularly happy.
