Make your next study spot a coffee shop instead of the library

Coffee shops give you easy access to caffeine, ambient noise and warm lighting which are all the tools you need for studying success.

I found an article from an online publication called Spoon University. This article discusses how science proves coffee shops are better than libraries:

This article sparked an idea to write a blog post on a few cute coffee shops in the West Lafayette- Lafayette area. You know, aside from the typical Starbucks location.

  1. Star City Coffee & Ale House

Located in Downtown Lafayette, Star City is a cute place to get away and study. It’s small but cozy with some amazing bakery items to choose from.

2. Literato Cafe

It is located on Northwestern Ave in West Lafayette. Not only is it a great study spot, but they offer such amazing food. Their fig and pear pizza is delicious.

3. Greyhouse Coffee & Supply Co.

This one is my personal favorite. It is located right on Northwestern & State in West Lafayette making it an ideal location for Purdue students. They have gelato, crepes, macaroons, and tons of coffee and tea options. Not to mention, Greyhouse has the most inviting atmosphere.

If you need to hit the books, try one of these unique coffee shops instead of choosing your typical library spot. You might just find that you’re even more productive than normal; plus it’s an excuse to treat yourself to your favorite latte.
