– THE CLASSIC –
“Proudly serving Intelligentsia Coffee.”
I am so happy to be posting another downtown spot for “yall”. Walking to my internship consisted of passing this large white square building. At the time, it was under construction and I was always curious of the potential. I remember my walk to work and passing The Classic for the first time. I peeked through the window and took a step in. Strong coffee and sweet pastries filled the air. It took me a whole three months to actually take a few minutes out of my day and order a cold brew.
– LOCATION & AESTHETIC –
The Classic is located on 9th and Main. It really is a hard building to miss due to the geometric architecture and white finishing. Walking inside is incredible. One wall is full of potted plants encompassed by metal railing. The furnishings remind me of a Swedish interior designer I once saw on Pinterest. Large windows and high ceilings create a airy and bright atmosphere. I believe anybody could sit for hours and work on a project or catch up on their favorite blogs.
The Classic offers multiple different coffee options along with bottled beverages and pastries. My friend, Xzavia, got a slice of pumpkin bread which was incredibly tasty. I am definitely looking forward to my next visit as I currently only live about four blocks from this hot spot. Do you have favorite coffee drink? Let me know in the comments!
