    Greetings from SE Tennessee

    Greetings all. I run a small coffee roastery/espresso bar in SE Tennessee. I joined this site hoping to discover a vision for a minimalist breakfast, lunch and baked goods menu for our shop. I have two smallish rooms in a pretty old building that will become the kitchen. So I have much to...
