Located inside the historic Engine House #10 in East State Village, Firehouse Tea & Coffee Café crafts homemade café fare and a wide selection of organic, fair-trade drinks. More than 60 varieties of loose-leaf and bagged tea steep a potpourri of herbal ingredients into steaming mugs or tableside fanny packs, and locally roasted coffee serves as a base for flavorings, espresso shots, and caffeinated drinks such as the decadent Zebra mocha ($4.40). Chewy balls of tapioca add texture to sweet smoothies in the café’s selection of bubble teas ($4.25), and milky chais ($2.25) satiate sweet teeth. Homemade bakery and lunch fare arrives mouthside in whole-wheat and sugar-alternative varieties, such as a sugar- and gluten-free lemon-poppy-seed muffin ($2.25) or a spinach-and-mushroom quiche ($3.95). The café aims to forge a communal space for the neighborhood by bringing in local music on Friday nights and encouraging patrons to compare notes on the merits of footie pajamas.
