This morning I got up early and headed out to try a new coffee shop in the East Lake neighborhood of Birmingham. I’ve heard wonderful things about East 59 for ages and they didn’t disappoint!  

Hours: 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday-Saturday, closed Sunday.

Menu: Lattes, Mocha, Pour Over, Espresso, Tea and more. They also serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Locations: East Lake – 7619 1st Avenue North Birmingham, AL 35206

(Coming Soon!) Hoover – 200 Municipal Lane Hoover, AL 35216

For those of you who are familiar with the Hoover library you’ll notice that East 59 is taking the place of coffee-ol-olgy, which used to be inside the library.

Vibe: Easy but lively with a friendly staff. There’s a shop attached that has lots of local and vintage goodies to explore. They also have a counter supported by books, need I say more?
