It's time for me to share another community treasure!
The atmosphere, the food, the COFFEE... I love this place. And I need you to know about it too.
It is Graffiti Corner - the frozen treat and coffee lounge in Fairmont.
Have you been? I'd be happy to meet you there!
I love that they can make any kind of espresso drink my heart desires. And they also offer teas, smoothies, blended drinks and slushy's.
I could really go for a peppermint mocha right about now.
And then there's their frozen yogurt bar. It calls my name.
There are 18 different flavors of frozen yogurt and over 65 toppings. You can create anything you can think of!
But they don't just serve amazing coffee and delicious frozen yogurt. Their breakfast menu includes things like a "build your own breakfast sandwich," omelets and french toast, and their lunches include delicious deli sandwiches, salads and grilled panini sandwiches.
They also have a wide array of baked goods, that are baked on site! You simply must try their pistachio muffin! It's delicious!
They get their name from the old graffiti covered shed that sat on that corner for nearly 60 years. Pieces of the iconic paint covered building are now used as decor, beautifully mingling old and new in the comfortable and inviting coffee shop.
When John and Patti Kasper moved back to Fairmont, they knew they wanted to offer the community something that it didn't already have. The combination froyo and coffee shop would provide a place that people could come and enjoy themselves, share time with friends and family, and just hang out. It even has an indoor fireplace, free wifi, good music, board games, and an outdoor patio with a fire pit.
And that atmosphere is one of the many reasons Graffiti Corner is such a treasure in our community.
I frequently bring my computer to sit and edit photography sessions; meet clients to discuss their vision over a cup of coffee; or bring my two rowdy boys to play a board game and enjoy giant cups of froyo topped with every candy we can imagine.
And as any mother with a kid strapped in a carseat can appreciate,
It has a drive through! You know what I'm talking about.
It's the simple joys in life.
They also have friendliest staff!
