Only one local coffee shop could get away with being besieged by ants, monkeys, strange dogs, elephants and neon green paint that looks like blood dripping down the doorway.
Even if I weren’t June’s featured artist (full disclosure), I dig the place for its groovy vibe and even groovier artwork on display.
Shop owner Two Feathers (yes, his real name) features a local artist each month inside the shop and continues to be amazed by the artwork that pops up on the exterior walls.
“It just shows up there,” he said, wanting to usher me outside to take a gander at the bloody neon paint and the depiction of a kid reading a book to an elephant. Two Feathers leaves the creations he likes.
Epic is definitely a hot spot for its couches, community, cakes and kookiness.
Oh yes, it also serves some dang good coffee.
What’s your favorite Tucson coffee shop and why?
Do you favor flavor over ambiance or vice versa?
(Dunkin Donuts has THE best French vanilla coffee, but I don’t really dig hanging out there.)
