Know how places will sometimes subscribe to magazines and just leave them laying around? Or maybe if they’re Magazines And Coffee, carry more mags than Barnes & Noble? The new cafe, Rev!, doesn’t subscribe to any. Particularly, not Rev! Magazine. I am shocked and appalled, I tell you, SHOCKED.
Personally, I was excited that Rev! finally opened. That “Coming Soon: Crossroads Coffee House” banner taunted me for way too long. Back on March 24, they finally opened. And a solid opening it has been. Right from the first week, their coffee has been good, the service friendly, and the atmosphere quite pleasant. Plenty of power outlets around for using their WiFi. Extra bonus points to Rev! for having the little coat hooks on the wall near the tables. Reminds me of the handy under-bar coat hooks at McFaddens. That’s right, check under there next time. SO handy.
Rev! managed to get open for the first big First Friday of the year (May 4) and have a good gallery showing. Word is that next month they’ll have live music on top of the art. Certainly a solid addition to the overall Crossroads scene.
