Find ice cream, cake, coffee and delicious sandwiches all at one location at Coffee Culture in the Walden Galleria.

Coffee Culture serves everything from baked goods to desserts to breakfast food. Opened in 2012, this is the perfect place to have a warm cup of coffee and lounge on one of the many comfy chairs.

The tasty beverages range from flavored cappuccinos, lattes, cafe mocha, white hot chocolate, espresso and classic hot chocolate. The coffee is ground from Arabica beans.

The restaurant and also serves chillers, which are similar to iced cappuccinos and come in flavors like Chai, Strawberries & Cream, Mango, Extreme Peach and Strawberry Banana. They also have freddoccinos in Caramel, Mocha, Oreo Crumble, Coffee and Chai flavors.

Food to go along with the delicious drinks includes bagels and breakfast sandwiches; breakfast is served all day every day. Salads, such as apple orchard, triple berry, berry pecan and Tuscan, are delicious, and the sandwiches are to die for.

My favorite is the chicken Caesar wrap, but customers can also get ultimate grilled cheese, classic clubhouse and chicken margarita.

And then come the baked goods. Coffee Culture has muffins in a variety of flavors, including red velvet, maple scan, pistachio, blueberry and chocolate chip. It has croissants, scones, chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon buns and brownies that will melt in your mouth. Giant slices of assorted cakes such as red velvet, chocolate brownie cheesecake, gluten-free peanut butter cheesecake and three-layer chocolate cake are also tempting.

Classic ice cream flavors are also available to satisfy the sweet tooth.

All of the workers are pleasant and friendly, and the atmosphere is relaxing and classy. It feels like you’re in the heart of New York City, without the hustle and bustle. It’s a relaxing experience combined with finely crafted artisan cuisine.
