Coffeehouse & Creperie
in the heart of Pittsburg, Kansas
it's a Root thing
Locally owned, locally operated. A cozy and inviting gathering spot for the community and visitors since 2015, located in the heart of a vibrant downtown.
A stone's throw from boutiques, a men's mercantile, a bookstore, an art gallery, restaurants, and a
4-minute drive from Pittsburg State University.
Original tile ceilings.
Original mosaic floors.
Locally roasted beans, locally baked desserts. Made to order crepes. Bagels to enjoy while you work on your laptop using our wi-fi. Teas and smoothies you can sip on comfy couches or in the front window with a view of the historic Colonial Fox Theatre.
Art and plants for sale, monthly live music and poetry, a Little Free Library, and gathering spaces for groups.
In short: a vibe.
It's a Root thing.
Let’s start with our beans, because that’s where all great coffee starts. We serve popular options by Signet Coffee Roasters right here in Pittsburg, and Bearded Lady Roasters from nearby Joplin, Missouri.
Great coffee also calls for great baristas, and we have ‘em. They know how to pull and pour. When you become a repeat customer, they'll remember your name.
And, we have options for making it fancy. Specialty drinks. Frozen drinks. All the variations of espresso.
If you can dream it up, we're pretty sure they can make it.
Andra loves the smell of Brad's coffee, but it’s tea she prefers to drink, and chai latte is at the top of her list. As in, a hot mug of it every. Single. Morning.
Choose a vanilla or spiced chai, or go old school and select from a variety of Rishi loose-leaf options. Or, order something a bit more trendy: a London Fog or Matcha Latte.
Prefer it iced? We can make that, too.
Buy a scone to go with it, grab a book from our Little Free Library or a puzzle from our game nook and you have all the makings of a perfect Saturday afternoon.
our crepes & bagels
You haven’t lived until you’ve tried our specialty crepes hot off the crepe maker — from The Gorilla (a fave of Pitt State fans!) with Nutella, marshmallow creme, bananas, homemade whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate, to The Berry Happy with berries, homemade cream filling, and a drizzle of white chocolate. We also offer a gluten free option!
With four choices of bagels and several cream cheese and nut butter toppings, if you leave here hungry it’s not our fault.
