Nestled in the Crossroads Shopping Center, this hallmark among Olathe coffee shops offers guests a warm and cozy atmosphere underscored by comfy couches and armchairs, wooden tabletops, a colorful tile-wrapped front counter, yellow walls adorned with local artwork and a massive craft mug collection, and the occasional special event. The homey decor serves as an accomplice to delicious coffee beverages made with fresh locally roasted beans, as well as teas, fruit smoothies, and baked goods (vegan and gluten-free options available).
While a better environment for productivity would be difficult to imagine, aside from optimum functionality, the attention to detail that has gone into designing Sweet Tee’s with a delightful balance of charm and utility makes it an easy go-to for daytime meetings with colleagues, long overdue coffee dates, or solo study sessions.
POUR Coffeehouse is an aesthetically gifted gem showcasing a bright bohemian ambiance dappled with earthy tones set against minimalistic walls, chic furnishings, adorable little trinkets, trendy light fixtures, and amenities for remote work.

When it comes to food, they have on hand an assortment of scrumptious pastries, desserts, breakfast burritos, and quiche.
