"I love the atmosphere inside and out."
I’ve been frequenting Coffee Hound since my freshman year at Illinois State. I like it because it’s a cute coffee shop in a nice area. I love the atmosphere inside and out. I also enjoy that there’s something for everyone. Before the Hound, I’d never had a latte that I liked. Coffee Hound has a really smooth and delicious latte which is now my go-to order!
"It's more than a cup of coffee. It's a process. It's a family."
Only certain businesses are able to offer more than a place or product. It takes passion, knowledge, and an investment in the people surrounding the business to make a place feel like it’s a part of the community. The Hound is one of the few places in BloNo where you get that feeling. It’s the amazing baristas memorizing your order, the daily playlists giving you all the feels, and the excitement April and Steve create through their passion for all things coffee. It’s more than a cup of coffee. It’s a process. It’s a family. Everyone is welcome.
"I really value that Coffee Hound has ethically sourced coffee."
I’ve been a customer since 2016. The quiet atmosphere is what brings me back. Even if there is background noise it helps me to feel productive. I also think it’s a really safe environment. I really value that Coffee Hound has ethically sourced coffee.
