If I remembered correctly, I had a hard time finding Haven. When I did, I was surprised by how small it was! I've been to small coffee shops before, but I think this one is the smallest yet! You can tell from the outside and inside shot how tight the space is. Despite the size, it didn't stop the cafe from being crowded! The cafe acts as a community hub and the locals love it there. One of the regulars even made an Instagram account for the cafe!

During the warmer months, they host movie nights where they set up a projector outside of the cafe and use the wall as the screen. I thought that was a pretty cool idea and a great way to bring the local community together. I was told that they will be opening a sister shop right by focusing on brunch called North Haven.

Sadly since it was such a tight space, I wasn't able to sit and drink my Mint Hot Chocolate as I planned to. Instead, I enjoyed it at a library nearby. If you are in the area and a mint chocolate lover, definitely try their Mint Hot Chocolate!
