Café Latte (Julien Poncet)

Walking into Caf Latte one is overwhelmed with the smell of coffee beans and pastry dough. It is a delightful combination. Located in the same spot as Foxley’s Cafe used to be, Caf Latte has that old coffee shop feeling. In fact, the comfortable layout combined with a playful menu and high-tech internet connections make it a perfect place to bring your laptop and finish a paper in comfort.Caf Latte is Appleton’s closest relation to an internet cafe. With free wireless connections for your own laptop computer or access to their two computers for a small fee, it provides that laid-back work area so many people seek.

The menu includes a full spread of coffee items including some creative lattes such as the Electric Espresso, a mix of express, Swiss chocolate, white chocolate and whipped cream. Another drink not to miss is the Mexican Hot Chocolate, which is a steamed hot chocolate with hints of cinnamon and vanilla.

Caf Latte also includes a selection of sandwiches, salads, panini, and delicious bakery items. One of the best aspects of the full menu is the kid’s meals, which, luck for us, adults can order from too. Old familiars like peanut butter and jelly to the more creative King Kong, a peanut butter, bananas, and bacon sandwich drizzled with honey, add flair to the extensive menu.

But if you try one thing while at Caf Latte I would have to recommend the pastry section. The flaky, butter crusts filled with gooey fruit filling are not to be missed.

Overall, the place has a relaxing but still vibrant feeling to it, allowing but not requiring productivity. If you have a laptop this would be the perfect place to finish off that last paper of the term at a leisurely pace, an iced latte in one hand and a warm cookie in the other.

Caf Latte is open from 7:30am to 6:00 pm, Mon. thru Thurs. and till 10:00 on Friday. They open early enough to run and grab breakfast and also take call-ahead orders for lunch. On Saturdays they open at 9:00 am to 6:00 and Sundays are open from 9:00 to 3:00. One thing to be said about the boom of coffee shops on college is that we finally have businesses open on Sundays.
