Wall Street Coffee House

Teresa Johnson with the help of friends and her daughter Maegan opened an inviting coffee house at 62 Wall Street. It's called Wall Street Coffee House & Emporium, and is located directly across from the Wall Street Parking Garage where the first hour is FREE.

The coffee house provides a friendly, laid-back, alcohol-free environment. But it's more than coffee, snacks, and free WIFI. There is plenty of art, jewelry, handmade crafts and vintage LP records for sale. | More>
