We’re pleased to announce the opening of a new coffee shop in Carmel – Coffee Bank! Sourcing their beans from Central/South America, Africa, and Hawaii, the café offers aromatic roasts with a lengthy list of specialty drinks. Baristas are happy to customize your drink to your liking with a variety of milk substitutes including soy, almond, coconut, and oat. We tried an oat milk latte on a rainy day and were quite pleased with the depth of flavor in the espresso. If coffee isn’t your forte, Coffee Bank serves a plethora of teas and fruit/veggie-based juices. Bring your appetite; the menu includes pastries, quiche, açai bowls, soups, paninis, salads, and wraps. The açai bowls seem to be the crowd favorite, which include a zesty açai blend topped with fresh tropical fruit and homemade granola. We recommend the Kona bowl. The independently owned café has a warm and inviting vibe and employees mentioned they’ll be opening a patio out back with seating and live Jazz. We look forward to seeing you at Coffee Bank this spring.
