Kirkwood coffeehouse and ice creamery where caffeine cravers and sweet tooths sojourn to read books.. In Short Live music and coffee concoctions set a high benchmark at this popular, community-friendly shop. Sips, which are available in three sizes, include cafe au lait, caramel latte and coffee granita. Italian cream sodas are an alternative. Pastries and cookies pair perfectly, and ice cream makes a great post-meal treat.
