Owner Charles Sole may have changed the name from The Daily Grind to The Hanging Tree Café, but one thing didn’t change, and that’s the delicious coffee. Carrying a wide variety of loose-leaf teas, flavored coffees, and espressos, the baristas at The Hanging Tree can fix your morning in a hurry with a nice tasty beverage. To go with the coffees and teas, there is a solid menu full of items including some of the best vegetarian options in town.
