Matchbox Coffee Shop Northeast

I’ve been eyeing Matchbox Coffee Shop for a couple weeks, but everytime I go past it in the morning I’m already 10 minutes behind schedule so there’s just no time to stop.

Located next to Dangerous Man Brewery (another place on my to-go list) this is an extremely tiny and long shop that almost seems like it was once an alley between two buildings, but added a roof.

Service:

This is a cash only establishment, so unfortunately, I had went against my gut and didn’t take cash out before, meaning I had to awkwardly walk out, go get cash, then return. Don’t mind me…

The barista was really friendly and the customers openly greeted me, bringing me to the environment…

Environment:

Really chill. There’s a little patio set outside and there’s also a couple tables right when you enter. There’s also a cardboard sign through the back that says “Patio,” unfortunately, I didn’t have the time to go back there and check it out. They had a lot of flyers up for local activities and band shows. It’s definitely a small, locally owned, shop with a loyal clientele.

Drinks:

This is the first organic coffee shop I’ve been to as far as I know, so I was interested in if I would notice any differences, I can’t say that I did.

I ordered the Iced Cold Latte French Press with whole milk. I’ve never had one before, so I figured now was as good a time as any to try it out. It wasn’t the best coffee I’ve ever had, but it was drinkable.

Food:

According to their Facebook Page they do have lunch options; Be’Wiched Deli and May Day Cafe, but I was there solely for coffee.

Overall, it felt really good to be supporting a local business and I’d be willing to go back and try something new, but I probably wouldn’t order the same thing again.
