Coffee Meets Beer at Boise’s Newest Cafe
Not every coffee shop has beer on its menu, and not every bar serves coffee. If you love both and the one you pick depends on your mood, there's a brand new cafe in Boise that's totally for you.
Caffeina just opened up last Saturday, and they're serving beverages galore. And avocado toast!
They identify themselves as a Coffee Roasting Company, but there's al-kee-hol on the menu too. Beer, wine, tea, coffee, and smoothies are all on the drink menu at Caffeina, and you can add in peanut butter or almond butter if you want a shot of protein. That might be best in the mocha espresso rather than the pale ale, but I won't judge.
This sounds like another great Boise spot that will be callin' when we want to hang out with friends and talk and sip and munch. Or it could be great for Boise State students who need a good spot to study. Or when we need a new spot to meet a Tinder date.
Besides the avocado toast with pumpkin seeds on top, the food menu looks yummy and pretty healthy. You can make your own toast with berries, PB&J, or hummus, or grab a breakfast burrito or breakfast bowl with eggs, bacon, and peppers.
The atmosphere might be the best part. It sounds big, expansive, and industrial, according to Boise Weekly. It's not a small place that makes us feel like sardines when it gets crowded and there's room to move around here, which might make it feel more pub-ish than coffee shop-ish.
I always love to high five a new business and congratulate them on getting to this point, so if you've got other favorite new places just let me know! Good luck Caffeina, and thanks for giving us a new hang out option.
Hours are 6 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday-Sunday.
Caffeina Coffee Roasting Company is at 4774 State Street in Boise.
