Purdy's is a great local coffee house that has that great coffee house atmosphere to it. you feel welcomed and right at home as soon as you walk in. This is a great place to bring friends to have a cup of coffee and sit back and enjoy yourselves. The coffee is good as well

I remember visiting Purdy's for the first time about a week after it opened (back in 2012). I love everything about it; the decor, the staff, the coffee, everything! Definitely worth making a visit if you're new to the area or visiting!

Whether you are in the mood for coffee, tea, breakfast or lunch, Purdys is a great choice. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is pleasant and encourages long lunches or work time in a good location. The homemade soups change regularly and are always wonderful. The lunch options are varied and are not too large for midday.... More

I love to veg in this place--warm and inviting. Excellent choice of hot tea. For the life of me, I can't understand the allure of the coffee, though. Several tries return the same thing: sour coffee. Yet many people love it. Then again, many people love sugar and cream. Maybe that's it. But do try it. Just don't go on... More

Excellent ambiance and coffee. An oasis in a downtown setting. Perfect respite spot for everyone from college students, up. A meeting spot when friends come to visit.
