I had the wonderful opportunity to come south for a work-related project and have decided to chill for the weekend with a bestie that lives in the area. Before I flew to Atlanta, I made my first visit to a New Haven food establishment. Wanting to be budget friendly since I was traveling I opted to check out a coffee shop. My choice was Willoughby's Coffee and Tea shop, located at 258 Church Street in downtown New Haven. It's right on the corner between Church and Groove Street.

Upon entering the building I saw that it was standing room only. That's a promising sign I thought to myself. All their tables were taken with customers either engaged in conversations, working on their electronic devices, and reading books. I felt like I was in the midst of a friendly, community coffee shop. I noticed a community info board behind the counter. They also had a plethora of coffee beans on display that one could order by the pound and Willoughby's t-shirts or coffee travel mugs.

After a few minutes, my chai latte was ready. Two people got up from a table and I snatched up a seat and sipped on my latte. It was good, very good. When you look at their coffee container, it says, "Dedication to Quality." I have to agree, you can taste it.
Next time, I visit I'll buy a pound of their beans to talk home for Karim and I. I really enjoyed my chai latte and recommend you give one of their coffee blends a try if you in downtown New Haven.
