A New Story

Coffee Prose began out of a love for Midtown and a desire to create community through coffee and books. Coffee Prose was always known for two things: its coffee and its books; two items fundamental to the shaping of any idea or story. We’re ready for a new story, our new story.

That new story is Rooted.

Sharing a namesake with Nick Wallace’s upcoming culinary book, Rooted fuses food and literature, in an atmosphere surrounded by pages of the stories that have shaped our past, with cuisine that will shape our future. Signature dishes offered by Nick Wallace combine ideal new flavors with the classic, historied cuisines that have inspired the growth of Mississippi’s flavorful culture.

In the morning, you'll find Guillermo Salinas's Just Vanilla Bakes pastries available.
