Lush is a local coffee shop that is not a Starbucks!

They really have all of the essential coffee drinks that a coffee shop should have. But they also brew a few flavors of their own iced teas, which are refreshing and great. They are known for their “lushies” which are ice blended drinks. My favorite is the Matcha Green Tea latte lushie with lavender and whipped cream.


The environment is interesting, but fresh feeling. They have an aquaponic watering system to grow plants along the wall. The long format sort of draws you in, and makes you want to stay. The tables are situated in such a way as to encourage individual studying. It’s a great alternative to Starbucks.
