Pickwick Coffee: A sign from above

I was on my way to work one rainy morning, when I walked past an alley and a floating apparition appeared before my eyes: A giant neon sign that said COFFEE.


This sign, to be exact.

I thought I was imagining it. I thought I was that sleep deprived. But when you see a sign from above, and it’s literally a neon sign above you telling you to get coffee, you don’t question it.

So I Googled it later that day and saw that it was, in fact, real, and it was a fabulous hole in the wall coffee shop hidden in an alley (well, not so hidden, given the neon sign). Yet no one I knew had heard of it. 

I had to go again and get a coffee for myself to really know it was real.

So I went with my roommates after church, and there it was:


I was not making it up! My roommates realized my sanity!

I got a cold brew, black, and it was delicious. My roommates got lattes with classic latte art.


Well, if you call an eerie resemblance to the Build-A-Bear logo classic. 

In any case, it was every bit as magical as it was when it first appeared to me in my vision, and I know I’ll be making it a stop on my commute more often. 


Well, except for this week, because this week is MY BIRTHDAY and I will absolutely be claiming my free birthday lattes from both Starbucks and Dunkin’. I have no loyalty, especially when it comes to receiving birthday presents. 

‘Til next cold brew,
