I think it is safe to say that if I were a car, my fuel would be coffee. I was a coffee drinker in high school, but my relationship with coffee has definitely taken off in the past few years. I prefer the word “relationship” as opposed to “addiction” because I can certainly live without coffee, but I feel as though I would be very sad without it. Not to mention, those around me might suffer if I were to break up with coffee entirely. That being said, I am going to give you the run down on all of the java that William & Mary has to offer. And yes, I do have my own coffee maker in my room, but more often than not, I find myself grabbing a cup to-go at many of the following locations on campus:
Greenberry’s Coffee Co.
Pros: Location could not be more convenient. Takes flex points. Lots of drink varieties and the snacks/pastries are also decent.
Cons: Can be extremely packed in the morning.
The Daily Grind
Pros: Coffee is always fresh. Can get soymilk. Homemade baked goods are also delicious. Great place to socialize and/or do work.
Cons: The Daily Grind does not accept Flex.
Dunkin’ Donuts coffee available at the Marketplace and Sadler Center
Pros: On the meal plan, can flex it at the Marketplace.
Cons: I was so happy to see Dunkin’ Donuts coffee become available at the Sadler Center dining hall. Apparently so were a lot of other people. Coffee runs out quick during peak hours.
Einstein Bros Bagels
Pros: Can use flex. Coffee is always piping hot.
Cons: Limited variety. Closes at 2 P.M.
