Steel City Coffeehouse has an excellent menu with gluten-free and vegan options. Go for a fantastic cup of coffee or sip an ale from their microbrew. While you’re there, check out their live music schedule and the local favorite Thursday Night Open Mic. (Now available online! Check out their website and facebook for more details.)
We love Steel City for their atmosphere, their incredible food and delicious drinks menu, and how they demonstrate continuous support of the local arts community.
