Study Sessions at Macy's

Any babes balancing school, work, and a social life know that finding a go-to, quality coffee shop is ESSENTIAL. For me, I go to coffee shops around my college town as a way to kill two birds with one stone. I get my coffee fix for the day while I get my work done. After trying out almost every coffee shop in my town of Flagstaff, AZ I am excited to share that I have found  my favorite spot!

Macy’s European Coffee House and Bakery offers everything a coffee babe would want in a cute cafe and it's warm, inviting environment immediately won my heart. Not only are the drinks and food amazing but the atmosphere is perfect for a study session. I quickly learned that I was not the only who had fallen in love with Macy’s, as there is almost always a large line out the door and a fight to find an open table. On weekdays most of the customers are locals but on weekends there is sometimes a group of tourists who stop in on their way to the Grand Canyon.

My favorite drink is the Macy’s Special which is comprised of espresso, steamed hot chocolate and topped with a little whipped cream. It is definitely catered to babes who like their drinks on the sweeter side but in my opinion, whether you like it sweet or not,  it's a drink you MUST try once (especially when you’re in need of a sugar fix!). If I get hungry, I almost always get the Macy’s Waffles . They are Belgian style waffles topped with fruit and can be made gluten free or vegan! They also offer a wide variety of pastries which never disappoint. If I go in the afternoon I will usually treat myself to a croissant or muffin.

On warmer days, I stick with my usual order of an iced vanilla latte. It is always the perfect ratio of milk and espresso and it is never overwhelmingly sweet. Their menu is huge and can cater to almost anything you want. If you are a student at NAU or ever in the Northern Arizona Area, Macy’s European Coffee House and Bakery is a must!
