A boutique coffee roaster and baker, Old Soul Co. is dedicated to the artisanal aspects of its chosen trades, preferring good old fashioned craftsmanship and letting the products do the talking over gimmicky marketing and celebrity chefs. Originally a wholesale only business, the company eventually began selling to the public in late 2006 as a sort of ‘speakeasy’ with no set business hours and a pewter jar that served as the cash register. Today, Old Soul has turned into a popular café and event space, making everything from scratch seven days a week. Popular breakfast items include the chocolate and the almond croissants, the quiches, and the English muffin with farm fresh egg, cheese, and grilled veggies. The lattes with beautiful foam art are also well loved by the café’s patrons. With both indoor and outdoor tables, comfy couches, an open kitchen, rotating art work, and friendly staff who get everyone’s morning off to a great start with smiles and warm greetings, Old Soul is the perfect place for people to relax, study, or hang out with friends.
