Just about two months ago Leaf and Flour opened its doors in downtown Willimantic following a speedy construction, right between Blarney’s Café and Bliss.
This combination tearoom, bakery, barista bar offers a wide array of tea blends, a variety of baked goods make in house, and sustainably farmed coffees.
The cafe also offers tea from Simpson and Vail, a longtime favorite, so finding a local spot to buy it is lovely.
There is a rustic yet modern feel to the décor, with wooden accents and furniture, and pops of color with old fashioned floral tea pots and mugs.
Leaf and Flour offers seating on the main floor as well as a spacious upper loft area. They played the perfect coffeehouse mix of Ed Sheeran, John Mayer, Sam Smith, and a variety of artists who were new to me but had a similar vibe.
Friends and I got Honey Lattes, Hazelnut Lattes, and the Bottomless Mug and each of us were very pleased with our beverages.
The staff was welcoming and friendly, offering patrons slices of cake from a recent cake competition. I would highly recommend stopping in and supporting Leaf and Flour.
