This is no Starbucks; it is Avoca Roastery & Espresso Lounge. The coffee is Italian style so if you truly love coffee and not bitter coffee hidden by cream, whipped cream and other sweets...This is for you. You can add all the sweets if you want as well. It is a Great place to stop, network or visit with comfortable chairs, an open atmosphere and an awesome cup of coffee served by a true Barista. It can be pretty packed at times...says a lot. One of which is Dayna James who is currently competing in the United States Barista Championship this month. Which would be one of many awards for Avoca. The people are real and stay busy cleaning...which I can appreciate since I don't really go to visit with the employees. They take their jobs very seriously. Pick up a Men of Fairmount Calendar while you are there as well as a great Snicker-doodle cookie; one of many baked goods. My granddaughter has to get one every time we go. They have their morning regulars that know that they can rely on a great cup of Joe. Bonus: They even provide classes. I can't find a better place for decaf coffee with all of the flavor I expect and it is not served scalding hot. Let them know if you want it that way. Many people boast their Cortados. I could go on and on but it would be pretty much like writing a novel. The most recent award is "The Best Coffee in Dallas". Try it out for yourself.
