Café of the week

Unique atmosphere in Scooter's Coffee

Scooter’s Coffee has multiple different locations but the location that is closest to Kirkwood Community College’s main campus is on Edgewood Road SW. 

Scooters, formerly operated at Coffeesmiths,  has an atmosphere of an industrial, almost not completely finished look to it. The higher hanging lights coming down through the open ceiling allow a very well lit experience, even after the sun goes down. 

The main area has tables and booths along with a conference style room that can be reserved for parties, large group projects or even business meetings. And lastly, there are the very comfortable chairs that sit around the fireplace.

The menu was  not affected much by the change in name. As far as coffee shops go they do not have too many special flavors or seasonal options. However the coffee made there is some of the freshest and best coffee around. I personally always appreciate a large mocha with whipped cream and Scooter’s has my favorite version of it. Along with coffee they do offer a wide variety of soups and sandwiches for sale for anyone to order and a solid line of confections and herbal teas.

    The ambiance of the entire cafe almost makes it seem less like a simple coffee shop and more like a high quality restaurant without the hassle of having to wait for a table. The entire shop is very clean and nice looking. 

The speakers overhead are always playing quiet music that is very pleasing as background noise during a conversation. They also have free wifi for all customers and a drive-through window so anyone can get their caffeine fix on the go.

Scooter’s Coffee is located at 2300 Edgewood Road SW. They are open Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 10 p.m.; Saturday, 7 a.m. - 10 p.m.; and Sunday, 8 a.m. - 9 p.m. A full menu and more information about the coffee shop can be found online at
