“Great little shop tucked away in south perry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

First off independent of the review the picture displayed is for Atticus coffee downtown, another cool shop, but certainly not the same as The Shop.

This place is essentially a large garage turned coffee shop. When you walk in you notice the place is kind of cluttered, but it manages to work considering the whole of it. The place has a surprising amount of seats considering how small it is so its great to get a cup and a pastry and sit to enjoy it. The coffee is not bad and they seem to take care in making it. The pastries are fine but not terrific. One of the other cool things is they have a small collection of ice cream to make sundaes so you can have an after dinner dessert and coffee after going to South Perry Pizza or Casper Fry.
It's also the only coffee shop in the area unless you go up the south hill or downtown which makes it the best in the area by default. The staff is nice and make a you want to come back. I recommend it if you're in the area.

“Try the lemonade...in fact, try everything!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Loved this coffee shop--talk about supporting the little guys, this local neighborhood coffee shop has done an excellent job making it's mark on the world. Serving food, ice cream, coffee, and other beverages, I frequented this place over my few-day stay in Spokane. I loved its open air feel and indoor/outdoor seating,.This is a great place to spend hours reading or visiting. Plus the lemonade it to-die-for!!

“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Former auto repair shop turned into a coffee / sandwich shop. Sandwich came on lightly toasted bread and was delicious. Selection of things to read / games to play invites guests to sit and relax at a table, sofa or armchairs. Not air-conditioned, so can be warm in the summer.
