“We were inspired to do coffee in a completely new setting — unique from Four Barrel, a place where we could introduce new ideas,” says partner Laura Seymour. “We wanted the physical space to feel comfortable, a bit like sitting around your own kitchen table, but elevate the experience by keeping the aesthetics clean, minimalistic, and organized. We chose lighter-colored materials so that they would always look good, even if they were covered in flour!”
Although this new endeavor differs greatly from the Four Barrel scene (it has tea!), some things will never change. There is no Wi-Fi or outlets to be found, so don’t even think about holing up too long! And while we are smitten with the new space (along with the rest of S.F.), we are excited for what’s ahead in The Mill’s future — a backyard patio, tasty toast options, and artwork are all in the pipeline. It’s only going to get better, guys! Take a look around the new space after the jump and then go grab a spot in line.
