At Coffee Shop High, this place would’ve been voted “Most Likely to Become a Bar in the Evenings.”
Either way, here’s Land of a Thousand Hills, a new coffee shop that’s also a bar that also serves meat pies, soft-opening Friday at Atlantic Station. (The slideshow would like a word.)
This is one of those places you’ll appreciate if you’re ever fatigued or hungry or in need of something brown and single malted. Surely one of those will apply.
There’s something pleasant about it right away. Maybe it’s the waft of Rwandan beans from the grinder. Or the entire rock quarry’s worth of white marble serving as the bar. Or the realization that that same bar also serves beer, wine and good whiskey.
Of course it’ll come in handy during lunch. You’ll partake in savory beef hand pies at one of the industrial-looking tables. Maybe grab an Americano as you head back to work.
And although the whiskeys are meant less for mixing and more for sipping on their own, they’d be happy to make you a nice Irish coffee or something.
Irish people don’t call it that.
