Night owls like me, often seek inspiration and sustenance, sometimes in equal measure, later in the day. Happily, one can find both at Boulder Coffee Co.
Housed in an expansive triangular-ish building, Boulder Coffee is located at the corner of Alexander and Clinton. In addition to a solid array of coffee and tea, they also offer a mind-boggling selection of baked goods. Chocolate crumb cake brings back fond memories... amazing how many lustful thoughts that pastry case has inspired. They also offer coffee cocktails (insert more lustful thoughts here) and have a pretty good selection of sandwiches. Something for everyone.
I've saved the best for last - I love the 'funky and intimate' interior. They swtich things around often so it never gets boring. Its a tough call - between sweet treats, the non-conformist building and funky decor :-) The baristas are very good - friendly and look after their patrons like guests.
Wait, theres more! Boulder Coffee Co features live music almost every night (see calendar below). Lets not forget free wifi. And I'm not the only one who is hooked!
This one goes to Natalia of From Our Kitchen for Food Destinations #5 If you're in fair Rochester, pretty much anytime between 6 am and midnight (yikes, this is a workhorse of a coffee shop!), don't miss Boulder Coffee Co. Chances are you will find me slinking in (or out of) there, appropriately caffeinated.
