Ah! How sweet coffee tastes! Lovelier than a thousand kisses, sweeter far than muscatel wine! -“Coffee Cantata”, J.S. Bach
The coffee shop appears to be a big hit with students, faculty, staff, and ME! I love Jazzman’s Cafe & Bakery, the new coffee shop in the Houston Cole Library. Karen, the lady in charge of setting up shop in the morning and my new favorite friend when I’m ready for my coffee, told me that business was really starting to take off.
As I came in to work this morning, I thought I would stop and get a cup of coffee real quick, but there was a huge line of students. Later, I came down and got my usual (I already have a usual); a supreme-sized hazelnut coffee. It smells and tastes great. I have tried their blueberry and mocha cappuccino muffins which were to die for. Today, I might try one of their sandwiches or salads for lunch.
It’s great to see students discussing their classwork or working on their laptops over cups of coffee and hot chocolate. Since the coffee shop and bakery are in the lobby, the first thing our patrons now encounter is a pleasant, inviting smell. Who doesn’t like the smell of coffee and pastries? Personally, I think coffee and research belong together.
Coffee falls into the stomach … ideas begin to move,
things remembered arrive at full gallop … the shafts
of wit start up like sharp-shooters, similies arise,
the paper is covered with ink … – Honore de Balzac
Houston Cole Library’s new coffee shop is coming along. They’ve started setting up the main counter and bringing in cute little tables and bar stools. The tile floor has been installed on one side of the lobby and will soon be installed on the other side (see picture). Click here to access Jazzman’s Cafe & Bakery’s Web site and check out the menu.
The carpet was completely removed, a wall was constructed near the snack area, the water fountain was knocked out, and it looks as though the tiles are starting to be put down. Otherwise, not much to report. Click here to access information about Jazzman’s Cafe & Bakery and check out the menu. I can’t wait until it’s finally here!
