In the first place, this is my breakfast heaven. Up until 3pm, they serve excellent coffee and crepes, just like in Paris. My favorite crepe is the spinach feta crepe, which I usually get with goat cheese, honey, cinnamon, and strawberries. Yes, I agree! Crepes both sweet and savory!

Fante's Coffee

A Real Coffee 'House'

Coffee houses have played an important role in history. Many ideas have been thought of, developed, refined, and executed at a corner coffee shop.

Big things happen at the coffee house. At our coffee house. Come experience the difference.

The friendliness of the staff and variety of options for drinks and baked goods make this place wonderful! It was nice to have an iced coffee made with Thai tea.

Quills Coffee Firehouse

Quality for All.

802 E Main St, Louisville, KY 40206, USA

Quills can be many things to many people. It can be a very good cup of coffee, or the catalyst for innovative ideas. The magic of a coffee shop is that once that environment is created, it becomes not just what the staff makes it, but what the customers make it. A true community happens. Quills creates this with three simple staples: great coffee, great service and great spaces.

What Others Are Saying

The coffee shop and office area are both very nice. Cappuccinos aren't as good as they used to be. A covid regulation prevents us from opening the kitchen, which is a pity.

What Others Are Saying

Don't go here. As much as I love supporting local small businesses, I stop at Starbucks next door. The baristas at their coffee shops have no training and don't seem to enjoy it. In addition to our knowledge of coffee, we have also invested a lot of money and time in modifying our home setup to meet our needs.
