Q | What’s the most popular item on your menu?
A | Iced coffee when it is hot outside. Caffe mocha when it is cold.
Q | Are there any items NOT on your menu that are staff favorites (that you’d be willing to serve up to any customer who asked)?
A | The side car: a six ounce single shot cappuccino with a single shot of espresso on the side. You drink the espresso first, then take your time with the cappuccino.
Q | What makes your coffee so amazing? Sourcing? Method? Atmosphere? Preference? All of the above?
A | We strive to find the best coffee, roast to develop the greatness already within, brew with knowledge and skill, continue to develop our own palate, and enjoy our guests. We develop relationships with small brokers specializing in small farms in specific regions. Roasting each source is meticulously tracked, tasted, and improved. Brewing consistently great coffee is a learned skill of managing variables. So I guess the answer is yes, all of the above.
Q | You partner with lots of local bakeries to offer various items throughout the week. What do we need to show up early for (aka what runs out fast)?
A | Our local treats are fantastic! It all runs out fast, come early and often!!!
Q | Are you one of the Luck Brothers? Where does the name come from?
A | I am a Luck and I grew up in Columbus. I got the name from my Dad, he brought it down from Akron to attend The Ohio State University he also was the Director of The Columbus Foundation for 20 years. He got the name from my Grandparents Milton and Trudy and they owned Lucky Shoes in Akron which has been expanding including a new store by the Trader Joes at Easton. My brother and I started the shop in 2006 but Ed has started a family now and wanted a career with stability and insurance – he works for the US Treasury as a Bank Inspector.
