Calling all coffee lovers and caffeine fanatics-
The Stevens Point Area has plenty of options for you to get your coffee fix. Whether you prefer a regular cup-of-joe or fancy a more sophisticated Instagram-worthy latte, there is something to satisfy you here.
Don't let summer slip by without taking advantage of Zest's shaded outdoor seating. Their specialty latte menu is currently themed as "The Gang Goes to Zest" a play-on the hit TV show, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia". Some of the options include: "Kitten Mittons" (Amaretto, Hazelnut, Espresso), and "Sweet Dee" (Caramel, Ghost Pepper Syrup, Espresso, with Whipped Cream). Take a peek at their current food menu here.
TIP: Ask for white espresso in your drink. It has a nutty flavor and more caffeine than regular espresso.
