I'm back again. Same day, new post. But I can't pass up the chance to plug a new venture on Route 66 (11th St.) in Tulsa, and this morning I visited a spot that deserves to be praised. It's called 918 Coffee, and it's been open for about a month although this is the first morning I've had free to pay a visit. Housed in an old mechanic's garage called George Tunes, a complete transformation has turned the greasy old building into a sleek spot for sittin' and sippin'.
The coffee I chose, a mocha with skim, was delightful, just right in every way, the cranberry muffin was above average, and the nice lady behind the counter was very accommodating and cheerful. There are both tables and nooks with upholstered furniture, the lighting is restful, and even the parking and access was easy. This is strictly a local endeavor, so of course I recommend you give it a try before you give up and head for Starbucks. I think you'll be as happy as I was!
918 Coffee, 2446 E. 11th St., Tulsa. Open from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
