Not just as in a place to escape the heat--but "cool" as in, you want to hang out here all day. Montage offers not just a clean aesthetic (with stools covered in beautiful Japanese imported textiles) but delicious coffee by West Roast. Located in the Red House Arts Center complex, just across the street from the SU Warehouse on Fayette and West Street, I suddenly have a place to get my coffee on as I walk to campus. Need more reasons to check it out? Can you say--baked goods by The Sweet Praxis and a commitment to sourcing local ingredients? All brought to you by Christian VanLuven and Tomomi Yoshida--the couple behind Roji Tea Lounge.
