The Coffee Garden at 9th and 9th
The warm, bright, trendy cafe is practically synonymous with the nickname for one of our city's most famous neighborhoods, providing an anchor for the other eclectic shops and restaurants that line the streets near the intersection of 900 East and 900 South on the city's grid.
On Thursday mornings, when I'm there without fail with my friends (after yoga class at Centered City down the street), it's full of studying or gossiping high school and university students, suited business people on their way to work, sweats-clad gym goers after their morning workouts, a handful of Web-browsing Westminster College professors (using the cafe's free wi-fi), and Mony Ty - the realtor who would be mayor of the place if there was one.
Sunday - Thursday: 6am-11pm
Friday - Saturday: 6am-12am
There's also a downtown location:
