Some days you just want a piece of pie and a cup of coffee. You’re in luck if you happen to be in Madison, Indiana at The Attic and Coffee Mill Cafe.
Vibrant and cheery, it’s a gift and specialty shop plus coffee shop all rolled into one fabulous Jefferson County destination.
The Attic and Coffee Mill Cafe in Madison, Indiana
Now in its fourth generation of ownership, The Attic has been serving the community since 1971. Adding on Coffee Mill Cafe has only increased their popularity.
Known for desserts from creative cupcakes to homemade pies, this Indiana town coffee shop, and gift shop is also known for something a bit unusual for a small Indiana town: Gelato.
Artisan made, the gelato at Coffee Mill Cafe is cool, creamy, and delicious. At any given time there are six flavors to choose among. They range from Key Lime Pie to Tiramisu, from Vanilla Toffee Crunch to Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. My favorite was the Cookies and Cream. Or the Strawberry Sorbetto. Is it okay to have two favorites? That is a tough decision.
Kid #1 was a huge fan of the Birthday Cake Gelato. With bits of colorful sprinkles mixed in, it’s really fun–and will satisfy your sweet tooth.
Madison, Indiana Coffee Shop
But of course, like I always say, an Indiana coffee shop is only as good as its coffee. Fortunately, Coffee Mill Cafe does wondrous things. Since my visit, they have begun roasting coffee in-house.
There’s more than just your basic cup of coffee here. Cappuccino, Mochaccino, Espresso, Chai tea (my personal favorite), and even Hot Chocolate all have their place on the menu.
You can’t miss the glass jars packed full of whole bean coffee. With various coffee flavors and blend that include selections like Snickerdoodle, Chocolate Raspberry, and Highlander Grog, this shop smells good.
Look for special seasonal selections as well, like Caramel Apple, S’mores, and Pumpkin Spice. Does that sound tasty or what?
Sit back and relax at one of the booths inside and browse through a nice selection of packaged gourmet foods from pesto to pasta to cookies. Or, head outside and watch the town from your perch on a fun and colorful chair.
Located a bit down from the Jefferson County Courthouse area, Little Indiana and family gladly ditched the car. When you are in a town as lovely as Madison, it’s a joy to walk. After all, there are more than 120 blocks on the National Historic Register.
There’s plenty to see inside The Attic and Coffee Mill Cafe in Madison, Indiana. Step inside and see for yourself. If you are in the mood for gelato, and who isn’t? I can’t think of a more charming place to go.
