When you need to step away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, step into The 806 Coffee + Lounge.
Nestled on historic Sixth Street, The 806 isn’t your average caffeine fix. You won’t find the standard, sterile interiors common in chain coffee shops. Cozy leather couches, funky decor, artwork, and vintage accessories fill the quaint interior, which brings to mind the kind of off-the-wall, creative spots you might find in a New York City neighborhood like Greenwich Village.
In addition to a vast selection of organic, fair trade coffee and tea, The 806 caters to vegetarians and vegans with its “foodie” menu. You’ll find options like bagels, sandwiches, made-from-scratch hummus, vegan chili, nachos, and dessert, all organic and hand made.
On weekends, cure what ails you with tasty brunch options like the HangOVA Breakfast Bowl or Migas Breakfast Tacos (pictured). The breakfast bowl is filled with roasted garlic couscous served over spinach, topped with one or two eggs, and accompanied by a roasted, stuffed avocado. The generously portioned tacos are filled with eggs, potatoes, onions, peppers, and crumbled blue corn chips, served with blue corn chips and salsa. All brunch items are baked and made fresh to order, and you can sip refreshing mimosas or “BroJs” – beer with a splash of orange juice – while you wait.
Open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m.-12 a.m., Sunday 9 a.m.-12 a.m., with brunch served Saturday, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
