Coffee Spills

What I hear and see and think about at the coffee shops I patronize.
Brisk. Fresh. Well-balanced. Occasional nutty and bittersweet overtones.

Rachel's in Oregon, Illinois

Rachel's at 113 North 4th Street opened sometime since the last time I visited in 2007, and expanded into the former pizza shop so is now a very handsome coffee shop/lunch room spot open Monday-Saturday. Lots of yummy things on the menu, and a handsome decor. We visited Saturday morning--early, maybe 7 a.m.

    The coffee is terrific -- a gourmet roast, Ancora, that they don't publicize much, but should. REAL coffee, fresh roasted. From the front Rachel's appears to be a coffee shop. You have to look hard to find that they offer sandwiches, made to order from a surprisingly varied menu, which are freshly prepared and superb. Their pastries - scones especially, are wonderful.

    They are often not open during their posted morning hours and they are seriously over-priced. They take such a long time to put whatever you order together, that I can no longer just swing by for a quick pick up because of the length of time it takes. Despite all of this, I am quite pleased there is an actual coffee shop in the area...
