Black Hole Coffee House

It's not every coffee shop that also sells wine, beer and food from local bakers and chefs. Montrose's Black Hole Coffee House does, though. It's a huge hit with area residents, too, the airy, low-slung space nearly always filled with St. Thomas students and people taking a break from doing laundry next door. The interior of the former convenience store is littered with visually striking artwork and furniture, and the fact that it’s tucked back in a residential area means it’s quieter than other neighborhood coffee houses.
