The Dripolator Coffeehouse, Black Mountain

Today is Dine to Be Kind - participating restaurants will donate their proceeds to help homeless pets in our area. I will be taking part in the big Dine Out and heading over to Black Mountain for a bite at the Dripolator - one of my favorite coffeehouses.

At the award-winning Dripolator Coffeehouse, quality is serious business. They take pride in their reputation for providing superior products and service at a reasonable price. They offer environmentally and socially responsible choices by supplying organic, shade grown, and fairly traded coffees, by recycling and using recycled products whenever possible, and by working with suppliers who share their commitment to the environment.

They have delicious pies, cakes, biscotti and any number of baked goods to go with your coffee. I usually get a spicy Iced Chai in warm weather and the hot version in cold. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. There are counter seats facing out the large windows - great for people watching. The sofas and futons offer comfy seating or you can sit at small bistro tables. The support posts are covered with fliers for everything from pets for adoption, art classes or homes to rent. Wifi is available and many just settle in with their laptop and enjoy the atmosphere, aroma and fresh hot coffee on a cold winter day.

Dine to be Kind is a fabulous fundraising idea. I hope it's a huge success!

BTW, the Dripolater looks like a wonderful place to spend an hour...or two. :-)
