Our Philosophy

WE BELIEVE THAT COMING TO A CAFE SHOULD BE MORE THAN A CAFFEINE FUEL STOP; IT’S AN EXPERIENCE OF CAMARADERIE, COLLABORATION, AND EDUCATION. WE LOVE TO EXPRESS OUR KNOWLEDGE AND PASSION FOR WHAT WE DO, SO COME IN FOR A VISIT AND JOIN US FOR AN EXPERIENCE YOU WON’T FORGET.


WITH EVERY CUP OF COFFEE AND EVERY SHOT OF ESPRESSO, WE TAKE THE UTMOST CARE AND PRIDE IN WHAT WE DO. OUR PASSION IS DELICIOUS, EXCEPTIONAL DRINKS AND WE HOPE OUR LOVE FOR OUR CRAFT CARRIES THROUGH TO EVERY LAST CUP WE SERVE.

As a multi-roaster café, we are extremely excited to share with you different coffees from around the country -- and even the world. We are honored to try samples of different varietals from different farms and roasters to build an amazingly diverse and interesting menu of seasonal coffees. As such, we regularly change our menu as new coffees come in and out of season. And while we can't possibly try every coffee from every farm from every roaster, we continue to try our best to tap into the wonderful and ever-changing world of specialty coffee.

WE TREASURE QUALITY INGREDIENTS AND ATTEMPT TO USE AS MANY LOCAL PRODUCERS AS WE POSSIBLY CAN FOR THE FRESHEST AND MOST DELICIOUS PASTRIES. ALL OF OUR PASTRIES ARE MADE FROM SCRATCH BY US.

With Stephanie Fischer, one of Comet Coffee's co-owners, a certified pastry chef, we bring together two of our loves -- superb pastries and coffee. Every single one of our pastries is made from scratch at the Woodbine commissary kitchen and baked in small batches at our Oakland location to maintain freshness and ensure little goes to waste at the end of the day. We are incredibly appreciative to work with such ingredients from like Ozark Mountain Creamery of Mountain Grove, Missouri, Rolling Lawns Farms of Greenville, Illinois, Salume Beddu from just down Hampton Avenue, and so many other amazing local producers. 


OUR COFFEE & TEAS

We want to provide our customers with the best coffees we possibly can, while providing education and insight into the world of specialty coffee. To do this, we hand brew all of our coffees to order to ensure quality and freshness and to allow us to offer multiple options to our customers. As a multi-roaster cafe, our coffees are sourced from exceptional roasters from St. Louis and across the country and our menu changes frequently as coffees come in and out of season.

We attempt to update our menus as frequently as time permits, but please be aware that the menu below may differ from what is available at the shop.

OUR PASTRIES

From local farm eggs to organic milk, we set the same standards for our baked goods as we do our coffee -- quality and freshness. We try to use as many local ingredients as we can, and if you have any suggestions to make for future pastries, let us know! Our pastries are made from scratch at the Croissanterie & Creamery and are baked in small batches in the morning at Comet Coffee. Because of this, the availability of pastries may vary.
