There's an argument to be made that the corner coffee shop is integral to a neighborhood's culture — in fact, it can even be a make-or-break factor. Neighbor's Corner takes that notion to heart, as the cafe is that and so much more. In addition to lattes and pastries, it offers workshops related to food, interior design and more, serving as a community hub. Upcoming classes include a night dedicated to saving birds, bees, and trees co-hosted by recent Good Food Award winner Terry Oxford (March 3) and The Art of Color, hosted by decorating guru and TV host Shannon Kaye (March 6). Grab a coffee or tea, enjoy some light bites and learn a thing or two.


A coffee shop that's a whole lot more.
Brain-boosting events and knowing your neighbors make life more fun.
