Cahoots reminds me of where I am – it has a truly grounding force to it that strips away all that is superfluous and stressful. There is an assured timelessness, a reminder that this city, this neighborhood – this very place are all still here. Cahoots Coffee Bar is an anchor amidst the ocean of erratic noise and frantic action surrounding it.
Cahoots Coffee Bar is an anchor amidst the ocean of erratic noise and frantic action surrounding it.
That’s not to say that Cahoots is an escape from the world. It is the world given focus. Cahoots quiets the noise and calms the action, and acts as a lens that allows us to see the real community built by the neighborhood. The greatest gift that Cahoots (or any local business) offers is the ability to see and appreciate what we sometimes take for granted: people and the small communities that they build. Cahoots Coffee Bar is a place to find a meditative moment, or contemplate the mundane, or get some work done, or at least to laugh and joke with some friends.
In short, Cahoots is a place that I feel drawn to and many others do as well.
