Urban Stampede

Posted on 22 November 2012 by mattbaker

324 Kittson Avenue
Grand Forks, ND 58201

Review -

I was surprised to really like Grand Forks. A really funky art’s district with this spot right in the heart of it. A cool space, with lot’s of space to spread out and cool art on the walls. Seems like all the cool people in Grand Forks make this their oasis. Located close to the college also, you will find a lot of students burying their faces in books and laptops. The only problem is that the coffee is not that great. They support a very inferior machine and I did not feel the barista really knew what she was doing. Although it is a great place to hang, the coffee is a letdown. I would get some drip and kick it and not waste your money on any espresso.

Broadway Roastery

Review -

There was a lot of hype around this place. Everyone in town told me I would like it and it has the look of a great shop. Cool layout, lot’s of interesting people and great light, but the coffee itself did not hold up to the local hype. It was mediocre and not very flavorful. For being a roaster I expect more. They have good food there and is a decent place to hang out. Beware though, they have a “one hour hang policy” that requires you to spend more money if you want to stay longer. I am not a big fan of that, but understand why it exists. I would recommend to go to a different place for coffee, but if you want to hang out in a cool spot for an hour, this will suffice.

The Living Room Coffeehouse

Posted on 08 October 2012 by mattbaker

1018 Rosecrans Street,
San Diego, CA

Review -

I think this might be a chain in San Diego, so hopefully this review does not apply to all. The one I stopped at was located in an old house and seemed to be the college student haven. I am not sure why there were so many kids there considering the coffee was so bad. It would have been better if Michael J. Fox made it. They had a decent machine (Simonnelli,) but the barista’s would have been better labeling cans on a factory belt because they really showed no interest in making a good cup of coffee. It being in a house makes it a interesting place, but bad coffee and the smell of ax body spray makes me want to take my business somewhere else.

Review

This spot is conveniently located and not terrible. There certainly could be worst coffee in town. A shotgun layout gives it an interesting look and it being a college town, seemed to bring in a lot of people studying. The food was decent and the staff very friendly. If you can wait, I would get my coffee in Moscow and skip Pullman altogether, but if you have to, this is the spot.
