When it comes to supporting local businesses, I’m one of the first to stand up and show my support. Recently, a
little coffee shop opened up in our historic downtown area of Burlington, NC. I had been trying to get there since they opened, but hadn’t been able to until this morning. Lucky for me, I had company and there was a car show in town. Two great reasons in my book of life!
As soon as you step through the door, you notice they have very charming decor and you immediately get a
sense of brightness when inside of The Blend & Co. It feels very modern, clean, hipster, but yet still classy and Southern. They have a room that is semi separated if you had larger parties or just wanted to join others at a
community table type seating area. They also have a bar area to sit at and plenty of windows to enjoy the view of downtown.
I know that they get their coffee products from Fortuna Enterprises out of Greensboro, so they truly stick with a buy local feel. It was indeed one of the best lattes I’ve ever enjoyed. With that being said, I would highly recommend the Caramel Latte if you join them for a pick me up. The blueberry muffin was also equally delicious and looked gorgeous. You know as well as I know that you can never go wrong with a blueberry muffin for breakfast.
If ever in the downtown area, you should stop in and check them out. The coffee is top notch, the decor is refreshing, and the service is outstanding. It’s a can’t miss gem of downtown.
The Blend & Co. – 127 E Front Street, Burlington, NC
If I’m ever in Burlington, I will definitely check them out! Next time you’re in Greensboro, you should check out the new place on Elm Street, PB & Java! :]
PB & Java sounds great! I definitely will! What do you normally get there?
