We asked, and the people voted on their favorite coffee shops! Over the years coffee shops have become a "go-to" destination when folks are not sure where they want to go. They are a fun way to get to know an area and feel the local vibe. Have you found a local coffee shop that deserves some light shined on them? Send us an email: brandi.wolf@n2pub.com
