I’ve heard such great things about the new Coffee Corner in Maumelle, so I had to check it out. Here’s the breakdown!
Sitting in the shopping center between Boudreaux’s and Se´ñor Tequila, Coffee Corner is a small coffee shop, but with huge flavor. It’s nothing fancy inside, but the coffee and food sure are!
(A sneak peek over the counter to watch the croissant process.)
The menu is mostly coffee and homemade croissants and croissant sandwiches. I love a simple menu where you know everything on it has been perfected.
I ordered lunch to go for my husband and I. I tried a white chocolate mocha with skim milk that I sipped on while I waited for my food. It was one of the best coffees I have ever had. Wow! I’ll be back for that, for sure. It was in a to-go cup, so I missed out on the pretty froth design on the top I saw many others had in their coffee cups. I did get my Hershey’s chocolate bar with it, just like everyone who dines in gets with their coffee as well. I love that little detail!
For food, I tried the last chocolate danish, a plain croissant, and the Classic croissant sandwich which came with bacon, cheddar, tomato, and omelet.
The plain croissant was massive! It was so flaky and buttery, so you can’t go wrong here.
The sandwich I ordered without cheddar and was happy to see some pickled carrot strings to add to my sandwich. It really brightened it up! While there wasn’t much bacon, the egg and tomato with the carrots was delicious.
The star, however, was the chocolate danish. It was crunchy and flaky on the outside, but the interior has a decadent chocolate filling that was very flavorful. I’m not surprised I got the last one, I bet these go quickly!
Lastly, I want to mention the people that own and work there. They are SO friendly and make everyone feel right at home. And I must say, we all love the Italian accents!
