Me at Greenhouse Effect Coffee

It was Halloween and wherever I went people would ask me if I checked out Greenhouse Effect Coffee and Crepes yet. I knew today had to be it, I could sense it. I was in Millcreek, UT navigating my way through the streets. Everyone had directed me, “Make a right at the 7-Eleven.” There it was, right behind it. Greenhouse Effect looked like a house out of a children’s fairytale.

Walking up to Greenhouse Effect Coffee

I headed under the archway, through the patio, and made my way inside. This place was the ultimategetaway from reality, I could really envision sitting out on that patio without a worry in the world. WhenI came in I was greeted by a pirate! Argh! Just kidding, this was Anna, the barista. I told her what I wasdoing and apologized for my lack of a costume. She asked me if I would like her to get a drink started. Ireplied, “Sure, whatever you recommend I am down to order.”

A few minutes later Anna called me back to the counter with the most delicious Chai-tea Latte. She askedme what I thought and I told her how freaking good it tasted. She told me that they make their chaientirely from scratch and take a lot of pride in it. I know I’m the coffee guy but I am fully endorsing thisChai-tea when you visit Greenhouse Effect.

The barista at Greenhouse Effect Coffee

Anna told me Greenhouse Effect is 20 years old and this is the only location. Tons of people come here tohang with friends, relax on the patio, or do homework and make use of the free WIFI. There are couches,tables, board games, comfy chairs, and books. They served Rimini Coffee Roasters. Their most populardrink is called the Baby Geezus which is a coconut and lavender mocha. Sounds pretty tasty, I plan to try itthe next time I visit.

Greenhouse Effect Coffee and Crepes is one with the community and customers that visit. They didn’tstate this anywhere and Anna didn’t tell me directly. But I could tell from walking around the shop. Theyoffer a cork board for locals to post things going on and coming up; there were tons of band and concertflyers. In the back, they offered a book library. And they displayed a huge amount of art on the walls fromartists such as Michael McQueen, Alex Walker, Tantric Tara, Jamie Adam, and Sage Bernier. EverySunday is open mic, which consists of comedy, poetry, and just about anything else you can imagine.

The Food

This coffee shop has some great food options. Tons of delicious homemade breads and biscotti. Youmight even get lucky and snag a sample from the plate when you’re there. Treat yourself to the Tiramisuor rice pudding! I wish I had ordered either one when I was there, they looked amazing. But that’s not all!They specialize in crepes, with over eight sweet crepes and 11 savory crepes, you can not go wrong!

Right before I left Anna picked up two tickets that were laying on the counter and handed them to me.She told me that there was a Halloween party in town and that I should find a friend to go and celebrate.Super thoughtful of her and I really appreciated the heads up.

I did end up going to that dance party that night and my friend joined me. We had a ton of fun dancingaround like fools. All I had in the van was a silly Find That Coffee button-up, but I rocked it and toldeveryone I was dressed as a barista. A fun spur-of-the-moment type of adventure.

The Bathroom

The bathroom was spooky but fun. This was the first black porcelain toilet I encountered on my trip.There was a lady made out of wire hanging from a tree that was mounted to the wall – left me with somany questions. It was a clean bathroom but I would love to see more paintings and decoration on thewalls, I would rank this bathroom an 7/10.
