What sets a great coffee shop apart from all the good ones is passion and knowledge. Mouse Tail certainly have both! Their name is derived from barista lingo: ‘mouse tail’ is the name given to the long, smooth, steady stream of espresso.
They roast their own coffee with single origins from all around the globe, and they also have their own house blend which changes seasonally. Their house chef makes delicious lunches and pastries, and the menu changes daily so she is always excited to cook! Not to mention they have a bunch of great veggie and vegan options too.
