Tempest Coffee Collective in Appleton, WI has officially celebrated its first anniversary, which means I've been frequenting that dreamy space nearly every Sunday for an entire year. I happened upon this cozy cafe one weekend when I was desperately looking for a change of scenery.
As you can see from the photos, Tempest is perfectly designed for an afternoon of coffee, laptop time and reading.
I'm shocked the owners haven't asked me to start paying rent for the amount of times I've unpacked my bag, taken over the couch or a table and spent endless hours pretending I'm in a much bigger city than where I live.
Be sure to celebrate Tempest Coffee Collective's first birthday this week - I recommend getting a lavender latte and stealing a window seat that overlooks the river.
