Homer's Coffee House is tucked just off Metcalf on 80th Street in a stone building that I often drove past before going in for the first time yesterday.
The interior of the coffee shop is open, with a half-dozen wooden tables and a cluster of couches in the back right corner. The shop is known for its espresso drinks and the menu is full of caramel and chocolate mixtures. I opted for a latte -- espresso and steamed milk.
The latte was clean and the finish was light. It was muddy without lingering -- meaning I could taste the coffee but didn't feel like it sat with me the whole afternoon.
The bakery case is full of cakes and pie wedges. Among the half-dozen options were neon yellow lemon sunshine cake, cappuccino cream pie and peach streusel pie. Wrapped muffins, brownies, and cookies are available on the counter.
