Slightly off the beaten path in Regent Square, there’s a new coffee shop, Biddle’s Escape. Situated in a residential (and commercially zoned) stretch of the East End, this new coffee shop has a lot to offer.
Biddle’s Escape isn’t a small space by any means. In addition to ample seating inside, there’s a large patio with table and chairs- perfect for early morning meetings or casual meet-ups with friends and colleagues.
The interior of Biddle’s Escape is warm and inviting. As you walk in, you’ll notice the smell of rich java being brewed. The walls are ornamented with local art, beads, and other artsy creations. The space itself is extremely clean and accessible. The back of the coffee shop is dedicated to all-things beads, and is managed by a young and skilled artist by the name of Jade. If you’re the creative type, and like coming up with original wearable art, this is a great place to be.
Joe Davis, owner, takes his coffee brewing seriously.
“All of our beans are roasted at Commonplace Roasters; we have formulated an exclusive blend that is unique to this shop.”
Mr. Davis further explained that he plans on sourcing un-roasted green beans for his Biddle’s Escape as well.
My cup of coffee was rich and aromatic. As I sat and enjoyed my brew, I watched as other new customers placed their orders. The friendly and knowledgeable staff happily answered questions as they filled coffee cups.
Biddle’s Escape is welcoming space. In addition to serving excellent coffee (probably the best in the east end) it has a myriad of other offerings.
Take some time and get to know Biddles’ Escape; you’ll be pleasantly surprised at all this quaint coffee shop has to offer.
