Kiskadee Coffee Company
Kiskadee Coffee Company is tucked between a restaurant and an antique shop on Main Street in downtown Plymouth, Ma. The coffee shop was opened in 2007 and has only flourished since then. Despite its small size, the aroma is hard to miss and the coffee packs a punch.
I walked into Kiskadee on a Saturday around 3pm and was very surprised to see so many people inside enjoying a cup of coffee and conversation with friends. A few people were sitting at the bar on their computers. There were two women sitting at one of the tables discussing computers. And the biggest group of people was gathered at the couches sitting in a circle discussing things like their professions and their latest adventures. To my surprise, this group was a group of middle aged men and women. The coffee shop is also quite popular with the local high school and college students because they host open mic nights with Quincy College.
Being in the coffee shop, I immediately felt at peace what with the smell of the coffees, the paintings and murals all throughout, and the warm and artsy atmosphere. I was fascinated by all the paintings and works of art from the locals. The baristas were all very friendly and laid back and they seemed to know what they were doing.
When I walked up to order my coffee, I saw that the shop also served baked goods such as pastries, lemon squares, cookies, muffins and bagels. The menu had much to offer for beverages, from espressos to macchiatos to hot and cold coffees. I chose to stick with a light roast house blend of hot coffee with a shot of French Vanilla. All coffees are given to the customers black and there is a station where they can add sugar and cream. I drank it black which was delicious. It was not too strong or overbearing and had a slight undertone of sweet fruitiness to it.
Overall, I give Kiskadee Coffee Company two thumbs up! The coffee is delicious, the service is great and the atmosphere is cozy. It's the perfect place to relax, chat with friends or do some homework and get the creative juices flowing.
