Review -

This is a hard one to review, because one of the barista’s at this spot is a big fan of my comedy show. So, I will tread lightly. The shop itself is a little hard to find and located within a strip mall. Upon walking in, there was limited seating with one table filled with a women selling art and another housing a guy playing guitar and singing loudly like we would be missing out if we did not hear him. The vibe of the shop struck me as a little more vagabond then most and felt it belonged in Eugene Oregon. I was excited to see the La Marzocco machine, but taken back a little when they asked if I wanted flavor in my latte. On top of that, no 8 oz cup. The final product did not have the greatest color and the flavor was a little hard to find. Maybe it was my tastebuds that day, but I sweat I could not actually taste the coffee. I think this would be a cool place to hang if there wasn’t some guitar guy belting away songs he uses to try and melt chicks panties off with.

Located right on the main strip in this college town, Cottonwood Coffee is a cool little spot. Tons of space to accommodate the numerous amount of students utilizing the free wi-fi, this spot also has cool art on the walls and a great vibe about it. Well decorated, smartly laid out and giant wooden pews make this probably your best bet in town for a cool hang. They serve great food. I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich grilled with banana and granola on the inside. Unfortunately the only downfall of this great spot is their coffee. On their site, they said they work hard to provide quality coffee to the town, but it is pretty mediocre. Their smallest size is 12 oz and they don’t have any ceramic mugs to drink out of. A Simonelli machine does not help the cause. Sadly this is your best bet in town for good coffee. On the bright-side, this shop is great and I nice break from all the crappy shops I have been to in South Dakota. At least they care enough to create a shop with a great ambiance.
