Frontside Coffee Roasters: This coffee shop is fun, funky and fresh, with vibrant art decorating its walls, an outdoor and dog-friendly patio, and coffee that is roasted by one of the owners. Featuring a fleet of classic coffee drinks from a latte to a cortado to a chai-fu (chai with a shot of espresso) to drip coffee, your caffeine fix will be met here. Non-coffee options include tea, kombucha, and craft sodas. Fresh, handmade donuts, muffins and cakes are delivered from local bakeries daily; and if you’re lucky you might be able to snag a “Mr. Pretzel” giant soft pretzel on delivery day. Bagel sandwiches, oatmeal, gluten-free treats, and smoothies are also on the food menu.

Frontside Coffee Roasters also serves up beer and wine. It’s a perfect stop before a hike to grab a bagel for the ascent and perfect place to end a hike for a cold beer.
