Lavender & Honey Espresso Bar is a boutique coffee bar and deli owned by locals Melanie and Charlie Porter. Since its inception in 2014, L&H has become the friendly, community-focused coffee haven that Melanie and Charlie always envisioned. Without sacrificing any quality, L&H is an unstuffy shop that’s as welcoming and enjoyable for connoisseurs as it is for coffee novices.

L&H’s design is defined by its softer edge: an open, bright space, whimsical lighting, and workstations that are designed to allow the team to easily interact with customers.

Aside from the cozy physical location, the cafe’s concept stands out because of the unique, industry-defining menu

Being tastemakers instead of taste chasers, the people at L&H are always thinking of fun new ways to partner with local and small batch producers to create exciting menu items that are true to brand, while remaining approachable and the Toast Bar helped to set this off.

Their mission still remains the same as they continue to hold themselves to that high standard of creating items that are delicious but at an appropriate price point.

Toast aside, L&H serves up a variety of homemade drinks, coffee, and gourmet treats.

The signature handmade cold brew is popular regardless of the time of year and anything with lavender tops their list of beloved items, such as the L&H toast, French Lavender Breve, and Lavender Lemonade.

The cafe also launched their own proprietary blend with Klatch this year, called the Honeycomb Blend, and it’s what they use on drip and cold brew at the shop.

Want to start your day like the Porter’s? Charlie starts by tasting the espresso with the opening barista, ensuring that the dial is just right, and he follows that with a small drip coffee. He also lives for the Sriracha Roast Beef sandwich with added red jalapeño and pepperoncini.

As for Melanie, her drink of choice is an iced latte that she likes to pair with a Parisian sandwich and a sweet treat.

Drop in to create your morning routine at Lavender & Honey Espresso Bar.
