Getting the picture that this Boone establishment is no ordinary grab-and-go coffee and donut shop? You’re right!  It’s got a cool, eclectic industrial style decor complete with lounging areas, big-screen TVs, and a really hip vibe. Test your checker game talent with the complimentary checker game on the high picnic tables. The creative art hanging on the walls is as entertaining as watching the big game on the big screen. They even have a popcorn machine on wheels for popping the perfect salty treat. Well unless it’s a special day, and they decide to amp up the popcorn game and drizzle cheddar jalapeño and caramel s’mores flavoring over the warm popped corn. That’s a play we call a decadent, sweet, and salty must-have. Remember to grab a few napkins and your fave beverage to wash all this goodness down. Yummy! The frozen blackberry lemonade complete with fresh lemon juice lemonade sparkle, cane sugar blackberries, and lemon garnish is amazing.
