Carnegie Coffee Company.
Carnegie holds a special place in my heart, not just because it's where I lived for 13 years, but because it's where both my parents grew up (although they didn't meet until after they graduated high school). It's where both my grandmas were born and raised. It's where the only grandparents I knew lived from 1955 until they passed away. It's where we visited my mom's great-grandfather when I was a little girl, in a skinny little home with the tiniest kitchen ever and steep steps to the second floor, steps so steep that even as a small girl I wondered and worried about my great-grandfather navigating them. It's where my great-grandparents and great-great-grandparents lived, having migrated a bit out from where my great-great-great grandfather was born & later raised 9 children (Green Tree).
So a place like this, in Carnegie, in the old post office, it makes me happy. They don't just serve coffee, tea, and treats (which are from Big Daddy's Donuts & Mediterra) - there are sandwiches and soup and salad, too.
For beverages, I had a small latte, which was one of the best lattes I've ever had (could be the illy coffee) and SP had an iced 4 fruits tea, which was a delicious fruity flavor.
We really enjoyed our visit to Carnegie Coffee. The girls working behind the counter/in the kitchen area were very friendly as well, and smiling. I hope we manage to make it there more than 1-2 times a year, which seems to happen with a lot of places we like.
