When we want to grab coffee in a charming, ultra-local setting, Feast and Foliage over on Meeker St is at the top of our list! Not only do they have great drinks, but they have a decent selection of breakfast items and lunch sandwiches to complete your order! Did we mention there’s beautiful plants scattered throughout the shop? Out of all the Kent coffee shops, this one feels extra "homegrown." It also has great outdoor seating!
They’re a wonderful option for taking advantage of the freshest ingredients that Kent has to offer since they work directly with local farmers and businesses to place small batch orders! Stop in soon to support our local community and enjoy a great cup of joe.

Truetea, we love you so matcha (yes, they also have organic matcha!).

How sweet it is to be near Sweet Notes Cafe! With everything made “in house and with love,” this Kent cafe has some seriously delicious options for both drinks and food! It’s one of the best coffee shops around. Don’t let the name fool you — they have some savory items on their menu too.
Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy the “Love Note Waffle” or the “Perfect Pair Crepe” but if you’re in the mood for something more substantial, you can order a range of dishes — from the “Chicken Avocado Club” sandwich to the vegan “Garden Toast.” Their fun menu items don’t stop at food; they also offer creative coffee drinks like a “Mexican Mocha” and a plethora of other beverages, including iced tea, milkshakes, smoothies and more. You can’t go wrong with this sweet spot!
