Drink: Cafe au Lait
From: Mildred's Coffeehouse
With locations both in The Crossroads and downtown on Main, this family owned and run coffeehouse has a very laid-back vibe that's perfect for settling down with a book or chatting up with friends. A cafe au lait is brewed coffee with steamed milk and foam. Mildred's has a brewed coffee station where you select your brew while the barista whips up the milk and foam. I chose the Mildred's Blend drip coffee, fully caffeinated.
The drink: creamy, light, nutty, smooth.
The foam was really great - it was fluffy, long lasting, and plenty of it. The Mildred's Blend coffee was mild, smooth, and nutty. All in all, a wonderful combination that I easily could have had multiple cups of. With the open and light space in the Crossroads location, it's a truly lovely and wonderful coffeehouse.
