The mountains of North Carolina have long called to me though it has been tough to visit them. But just recently, I was able to make a quick visit to the area and make a few deliberate stops, one of which was to the city of Boone and a coffee establishment known as Hatchet Coffee Roasters.

Revelstoke Coffee

WiFi?: yes
Rating: 6+ [see key]

While I have driven around the perimeter of New Hampshire quite a bit, I never had an occasion to traverse it until recently. The state is beautiful and while any number of stops could have been interesting, I am a sucker for capital cities and made my way over to Concord. But before seeing the sights, I first made my way to a local coffeeshop called Revelstoke Coffee.

East Park Donuts & Coffee

Location: Nashville, TN
WiFi?: yes
Rating: 6+ [see key]

If you get your donuts exclusively from a national chain, you have likely wasted many years on mediocre pastries accompanied by unremarkable coffee. But if you like to seek out local places that do wondrous things with donuts and coffee, then you should head on down to Nashville to try out East Park.

Manchester Coffee Co

Subject: Manchester Coffee Co.
Location visited: Distillery District, Lexington, KY
WiFi?: yes
Rating: 6+ [see key]

Most people quickly associate a storied history of distilling spirits with Kentucky. So it was no surprise to find one of the more happening places in Lexington was around the Distillery District, located on the grounds of the old James E. Pepper Distillery. After exploring the district my first night in town, the next morning I made my way down the street to try out some local brews at Manchester Coffee Co.

Rating: 6+ [see key]

It is not often that I get to Iowa. While it has been on my revisit list for some years, it evaded me until a recent road trip driving east from Montana. Wanting to avoid certain areas of congestion, I took many a back road and detour, and found myself in the lovely city of Davenport. Located on the Illinois border, the city offered a perfect place to stop for a brief coffee break.
