Vanilla Moose Coffee: Fresh Brew and Tailored Bites

by | May 2024

VANILLA MOOSE Coffee is a brand-new coffee cafe in Lebanon. It began as a coffee truck and added a physical location in the Hamilton Station area. I had the pleasure of eating lunch. The shop serves and sells special roast coffee in whole beans or grinds it for you. 

I ordered the mocha because that is my go-to drink. It tasted great and was hot. The margharita panini looked like a great dish — it includes baby crushed tomatoes, but I can’t have tomato seeds. Josh, the owner, said that he would deseed the tomatoes. I was very impressed with his willingness to accommodate dietary issues. The panini did not disappoint. I’m craving it as I type this review. It had the perfect combination of flavors. 

My friend had the classic turkey panini and a black coffee. He said that it was delicious. I am not usually a fan of black coffee. I typically prefer a little coffee with my creamer. At the urging of my friend, I decided to taste the black coffee. It was so good that I bought a couple of packages of the grounds to brew at home. The aroma and flavor were not your typical black coffee. More information about the roaster is on the cafe’s website. 

The restaurant was well-decorated, with books and magazines for customers to peruse. The furniture was nice, with plenty of seating. I recommend Vanilla Moose Coffee to anyone looking for a flavorful cup of coffee and a good sandwich. I plan to return and try a few more items off the menu, and my family requests I buy more grounds to brew at home. I give them five stars. GN
