What do you do when you’re a Halloween lover and a coffee enthusiast? Combine the two of course! The Brewed Coffee, a horror-themed shop in Avondale, has a penchant for delicious brews and plenty of scares. Located in the larger Bric-a-Brac Records & Collectibles, the shop distinguishes itself with its own storefront and the fact that they sell coffee, of course.
Aside from the great coffee, they also offer a monster-centric movie club. The Brewed Coffee hosts screenings of prime horror flicks in the cozy cafe for members of the Brewed Monster Movie Club. Sign up here to join in on the fun!
With eclectic syrups like coconut pumpkin available to try and bites from Bittersweet Bakery, this brightly decorated shop is definitely one to try out. Enjoy any number of delicious pastries like cheese croissants, pecan rolls, cherry clafoutis, blueberry oat cookies, and sprinkle rice-crispies. There are a bunch of cozy booths to utilize as well– perfect for curling up with a mystery novel or spend the day co-working in.
With walls painted a vibrant purple, and lined with nostalgic posters, this fun coffee shop leans heavily into the kitschy horror genre with memorabilia-packed shelves. Open Monday through Friday from 7 AM to 7 PM and Saturday through Sunday from 8 AM to 7 PM, The Brewed Coffee is the perfect place to bring in the upcoming spooky season.
