Village Coffee

Perfect for the pre-run caffiene fix. There is a new coffee shop in town which is an Alabama owned business. Village coffee started out in Troy and has just added a new shop here in Montgomery. The coffee shop is located in front of the Publix on the Atlanta Highway and Taylor Road. Coffee is better than at the popular Seattle's chain of coffee shops; it is less crowded and much, much more tidy. A dark chocolate covered espresso bean has served with each cup I've ordered. The staff is very friendly and the setting is casual and inviting. There is even a guitar in the seating area just waiting for you to play.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 -.5 for One Minor Dissappointment. Like most coffee shops in this area, the outside seating area faces a parking lot and a busy street, BLECCHHHHHH! Who wants to sit outside with the carbon monoxide fumes and watch passing cars? It would be nice if a coffee shop would open here that has outside dining area that faces a more natural or pleasing setting. The best one of seen in Alabama is the Highland Coffee Company in Birmingham. Anyone know of others around Montgomery?

The Village Coffee shop in Montgomery has been our favorite for several months now. Since we live in Elmore County, it's the closest to home. Plus, we do our grocery shopping at Publix.

Found out this evening that they now offer complimentary wireless Internet. Compare that with the pay-per-day service offered at the big chain coffee shops and it makes Village an even better deal.
