Formerly known as Roots, you’ll probably run into someone you know. The decor is inviting, dim lighting, couches, Thomas Jefferson light bulbs, wood finishes. I particularly enjoy the coffee shop to get some writing done. It’s typically filled with teenagers, and young adults. Friendly, smiling barista’s who occasionally get caught up in conversations with “the usual” customers.You won’t be greeted with snooty barista’s (you know you’ve met one). If you want a relaxed coffee shop which is inviting for going on dates, finishing homework, or discussing the importance of diversity, Edison is your best bet around the Denton County area.
You’ll have a warm cup of coffee with the option of buying pastries from The Flour Shop or a macaron from Joy Macarons. I prefer the macarons. My highly suggest trying their seasonal drinks. They’re ever changing, spunky, and who know’s — it might be the best concoction you’ve ever had. My favorite drink? A cortado. They also have pretty cool chalk art all year long, and merch that will make people think you’re an Edison ambassador. If you end up loving Edison, they now have a membership. You get a free Edison t-shirt, Edison tumbler, a member cash card ($20), 20% off coffee, drinks, food, classes, and merchandise, 4 member events and parties, and Edison snail mail. It costs $150 per year.
I personally have not purchased the membership, but the thought it still lingering. If you haven’t been to Edison, and you’re around the area — give it a shot. If all else fails, get a hot chocolate.
