Thou Mayest Coffee Roasters

The passion for three C’s — coffee, camaraderie and comfort — brew strong at this Crossroads favorite. Whether you’re on the go or looking to get lost in its cozy, rustic trappings, Thou Mayest Coffee Roasters’ hope is that they can be the best part of your day. In addition to its inspiring themed roasts like the Alter Ego espresso, adventurous Boldly Go brew and Laid-Back decaffeinated blend, the café showcases other businesses such as Heirloom Bakery and Hearth, The Upper Crust Pie Bakery and Diebel’s Sportsmens Gallery by carrying their treats and accessories.
