Summit Coffee Co. opened its doors on Main Street in Davidson, N.C. over 15 years ago. It's a small, cozy shop and because of its size, the aroma of fresh coffee and espresso pleasantly bombards everyone who enters. The friendly baristas obviously know what they're doing and work quickly and competently.
When ordering an espresso beverage, one is given the choice of whole or skim milk, and the list of flavors is long and includes several sugar-free options.
It's likely that all the seating inside will be taken at any given time, but fortunately, there are many tables and chairs outside. There are even water bowls for any canine friends that might be tagging along. Summit is making an effort to be green, too--they've labeled separate bins for trash and recyclables.
A good coffeehouse is essential in a college town like Davidson, and Summit is not only good, it's fantastic.
