Description: The definition of ‘cultured’ is defined by the dictionary as:
Cultured Grounds has taken over for where Novitasso Coffee was. Sadly, I never got to go there so there; so I made sure to visit Cultured Grounds to avoid that mistake. The coffeehouse is located on the main floor of Twin Towers Place in Peoria. The location is a rather odd place, as I am not familiar with the buildings and never would’ve guessed there were businesses located there.
Cultured Grounds is located on the ground level, in the middle of the main area surrounded by a green fence. The coffeehouse itself is lit by a giant skylight that provides ample lighting. The layout and decor are really nice. They have these big brown couches that were super comfortable. The cashier must’ve known I was cozy as she brought my drink to me. I give props to whoever decorated the coffeehouse as it was well put together.
I ordered an iced caramel latte and it was pretty yummy. It was a decent blend of caramel and espresso but the espresso was a bit overwhelming for my tastes. Not bad by any means, though! They offer packaged and homemade snacks to compliment your drink. I snagged some milano cookies and those went perfect with my drink.
It’s a good thing I don’t live in the towers. I would spend all my free time lounging on the couches, sipping coffee and eating milano cookies.
Check it out… if you are cultured enough.
