Totally Boise’s Coffee Pick of the Week: Awakenings Coffee House

Finding the perfect coffee location that includes great coffee and great food can be tough. Located on the corner of Overland Road and Five Mile, Awakenings coffee has both great coffee and food while creating an environment for everyone. Whether looking to grab a quick breakfast/lunch, sit down and study or socialize with friends, Awakenings is a great option.

Going on four years, Awakenings Coffee House started their business with the idea of wanting to make an impact in the Boise community. Showing commitment to the community is a display near the order line that includes handmade items made locally by refugees with all proceeds going to the artist. This makes ordering coffee even more fun when shopping and supporting the local community. Awakenings also donates a portion of their proceeds to organizations that help women and children in Boise and Ethiopia.

Creating handcrafted coffees and espressos using beans from Identity Coffee Roasters, Awakenings also has teas, smoothies and kombucha. If you aren’t sure what to start with, you can always look to their “Staff Specials” and order fun employee picks like “The Meg”; a salted lavender breve, or “The Amanda”; a mango coconut orange Italian cream soda.

Aside from the delicious drink options, Awakenings has a breakfast menu created for patrons on the go or looking to sit down and enjoy their meal. Food items include breakfast bowls, bagel sandwiches, eggs with toast and so much more.

Whether having a relaxed day or in preparation for a busy work day, Awakenings coffee is a great way to kickstart the morning in the Treasure Valley.

Location: 10650 W. Overland Rd.
