I am a huge fan of local gems and beautiful brick walls. That is one of the reasons I am so in love with this place. Ivy Wild is an old elementary school built in 1916 in Colorado Springs that had to close it’s doors in 2009. It then was brought back to life as a brewery, coffee shop, bakery, and meat locker came together to create a space for community in the community. So much community and you know that I am all about that!
I have spent mornings working on the blog, unforgettable conversations with friends over coffee, beers to celebrate babies and birthdays, lunch dates with my man, and summer sun out of the porches.
You have seen a bit of this place here before – remember my birthday pictures with a cupcake from Old School Bakery? Or the pictures with my Ekata Designs Handmade Bracelet? This place is one that I find myself at all the time – they have lots of wall plugs, great coffee, and beer! (what more do you need?)
Today I was brave and asked my barista at The Principal’s Office if I could snap some pictures of his pour over skills – mmm… it brings me back to the days when I worked at Pour Jon’s! Did you know that I used to work at a coffee shop? I did and now the complimentary burnt coffee at church is harder to swallow.
If you are ever passing through Colorado Springs, I hope you find yourself here for a morning, afternoon, or evening! I promise, you won’t regret it.
