I met up with some Easton friends this past Sunday at the new Greisers Coffee & Market. As a writer, I’m always observing my surroundings. Here’s what I found:
Greisers coffee shop not only offers local townspeople great coffee, baked goods and paninis, it also has the feel of a quaint New England country store, offering a nostalgic vibe that reminds us of simpler times. A time where locals met up for conversation before starting a busy day or winding down after work. Whether meeting up intentionally or just stopping in for a cup of Joe to go, people were striking up conversations all around me.
Like any general store, Greisers also carries hard to find unique gift items (many made by local Easton residents) as well as gourmet cheeses and maple syrup, while also offering some practical groceries for those in need of a last minute half gallon of milk.
As I was waiting on my friends, people sat down all around me, introducing themselves and including me in their light-hearted banter with their spouses and children. Maybe it’s the coziness and warmth of the decor that makes people feel like they are sitting in someone’s living room.
Since these types of country stores are typically found in quaint charming New England towns, Greiser’s Coffee Shop and General Store fits right in and is just what Easton needs.
Whether you live locally, or in a surrounding town, it’s worth making Greisers part of your daily or weekly routine.
