Sabbath Coffee Tour: Sisters' Sludge (Minneapolis)
For my latest stop on the sabbath coffee tour, I visited Sisters' Sludge Coffee in south Minneapolis. This tiny little shop (on the corner of Bloomington Ave and 46th St) is owned by three identical triplet sisters. This shop serves beans roasted by UP Roasters in Minneapolis.
I enjoyed a skinny latte (see picture below) during my time in this shop. It was the perfect amount of foam, steamed milk, and espresso served in a glass mug, which is my favorite way to drink a latte. There were abundant (and fresh!) baked goods available, with muffins being pulled out of the oven while I was there. Other snacks including yogurt, wrapped sandwiches, and oatmeal available.
This shop has numerous small tables available for seating, as well as some couches in a cozy grouping. When I first arrived, the shop was quiet, but soon filled up with neighbors enjoying each other's company. This is clearly a neighborhood gathering place. I was greeted warmly by the baristas when I walked in, and the baristas seem to know all of their guests by name.
This is a cozy gathering place on a very cold day. There is free wifi, and abundant street parking, and the coffee shop is an intimate place to meet with friends. I was doing some work while I was here, but the tables are not large enough to spread out too much. Overall, a comfortable place to chat with friends over great coffee. There is a hot drinks menu, a cold drinks menu, a kids drinks menu and gourmet hot chocolates.
