The Beauty of Artifact Coffee

Coffee shops are best on Sunday afternoons when you need a space to relax in before the beginning of another week. Artifact Coffee, a spinoff of Baltimore’s widely acclaimed Woodberry Kitchen, is a lovely place to do just that. I visited Artifact Coffee for a late lunch with my friend Sarika and absolutely loved the hipster decorations. With a spacious interior, Artifact Coffee offers freshly baked goods, an interesting mix of coffee drinks (lavender latte anyone?), and a great all day menu. Plus, if you don’t want to sit, they also have island bar tables you can stand and chat at–a reminder of my favorite coffee bars in Italy.

I loved Artifact’s random paintings–they were all so fun to look at!

And lastly, the remnants of a fun afternoon.

I had a sweettooth the afternoon I went so I ordered one of Artifact’s summer specials–a lavender honey latte. With a light aftertaste of lavender and honey blended into the creamy coffee so wonderfully, it’s a great ice coffee choice. I also highly recommend Artifact’s Vegetable Banh Mi, especially for those that enjoy sweetly-glazed tofu sticks. And of course, any of their in-house cakes and fresh pastries is a must-have with your coffee too!

Coffee shops are great places because there’s beauty in their simplicity. So in the spirit of simplicity, here’s a quote from an author I enjoy:

“The greatest ideas are the simplest.”- William Golding
