Arrow Coffee Co. provides friendly atmosphere, delicious coffee


Coffee is an important aspect of the collegiate lifestyle. For some students, this week may not have been possible without it. There are many places in town that cater to this need, but none quite so well as Arrow Coffee Co., the most recent addition to the Manhattan coffee scene.

Arrow Coffee Co. opened its doors on Aug. 14 and is located in the Wildcat Landing shopping center at 1800 Claflin Rd. It has a friendly and familiar atmosphere, especially due to the cheery baristas. The tables and chairs look very similar to the ones students would find in their parents’ kitchens.

Even though the store has only been open for a little more than two months, there seem to be quite a few people who have made Arrow part of their daily routine.

The customer can take this coffee experience however fast or slow he or she wants. For customers in a hurry, there is an airpot of coffee right next to the door from which customers can serve themselves into a cup. It is suggested that they leave a $1.50 donation, then continue on their way.

For patrons who have some time, the pour-over option is available, and worth the few extra minutes it takes to watch the staff brew you one single, extremely fresh cup of joe.

I would highly recommend people check out this newest coffee shop addition to the Little Apple. The menu includes a wide variety of coffee selections, pastries and lunch items. It is close to campus, making it a great place to study, socialize or sit and enjoy the atmosphere.

Arrow Coffee Co. is open Monday 7 a.m. 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday 7 a.m. 8 p.m. and Sunday 2 8 p.m.
