Love this place! They have the best coffee in town and the service is impeccable! They have books, games, and puzzles if you don't have a laptop and I love the local art hanging on their walls.
It was 103 degrees in Hutchinson, KS the day I visited Metropolitan Coffee. They have a wonderful 'cool' menus of drinks. I ordered their Orange Smoothie and it was totally refreshing and lowered my internal thermometer! I got an iced coffee to go and it was very flavorful with a deep rich coffee flavor.
This place was by my hotel and not part of a chain (that I am aware of). This was a pick up coffee before I headed back home. I was sorry I could not stay and soak up the atmosphere the place was cozy and inviting and the coffee was good.
I enjoy Metropolitan Coffee. It has a good vibe and is more of a traditional coffee house with books and games you can play. It's nothing like Starbucks. The coffee is better, the atmosphere is better, and they have live music periodically on the weekends and some evenings.
The owners have made a really cozy place to hang out, eat fantastic dessert treats, and drink their oh so lovely coffees. They also have some items for sale if you desire. Great place to visit. Much better than Starbucks even though I love them as well.
It's always nice to find a great, privately owned coffee shop when you're touring around the country. This place was awesome. Great vibe about the place. Quiet, relaxing, nice music, and the barista was friendly and conversational. Before we leave town, I'll be back for more!
