coffee kittieCoffee aficionados definitely have strong opinions on who makes the best "cup o' Joe" in town. This applies whether it's a spot where they get their early morning dose of "wake me up!" or a special place where they indulge in a cup of "froufrou" java. And if you can grab a breakfast sandwich, hearty breakfast or lunch, or tasty pastry, too ... all the better!

We loved the list of McKinney coffee spots in the latest Community Impact so much, we asked the ladies over there if we could share this with all of you, and they said "yes!" (Thank you, Cassidy Ritter and Emily Davis.)
