Fremont CoffeehouseMarch 29, 2010
A few houses line the street on a Main Road in Fremont. Amongst busy shops and restaurants they may seem out of place, but upon closer look they house funky boutiques, restaurants, and the Fremont Coffeehouse. Walking inside it is easy to see that this place celebrates its uniqueness.
The rooms of the house have been turned into various areas for seating. This is the perfect set up if you are looking to study, need a cozy place to chat, or have rambunctious children since everyone can find their own nook. Or if the mood takes you sit out on the front porch or set up shop on the larger back porch. Tables ranged in size from cozy two seaters to larger ones for studying with table lamps to boot.
One thing I noticed was that the walls seemed to be in a state of disrepair. There were areas where it appeared that small holes had been repaired and contrasted the orange painting on the walls. In the room R and I choose to sit there was an exposed hole (decent size one at that) on the wall hiding behind a chair. Hmmm….
The coffee was good. I got a Cafe Carmel, which I recommend. It had just the right amount of carmel init so that the taste wasn’t overpowering or overly sweet. However it was cold. R watched them make it and told me later that it didn’t look like they steamed it long enough. They didn’t.
Since we are now on a healthier eating kick R and I decided to split a pastry and got a blueberry coffee cake. It was perfect: crumbly and yet soft. It was a good route to go.
One issue that we ran into was connecting to the internet. R got the info to log online, which you can get at the register. You get 4 hours with purchase. However logging in became much more hassle than it was worth. R, a computer programmer, declared the connection horrible and ended up using an open connection from a business across the street.
Before leaving we picked up a bag of their coffee which I’m eager try and review.
Overall the layout was amazing and worth a trip just to check out. The Coffee was good but could have been better.
