This past Friday another cute coffee shop & bakery opened in the South End. The Wholy Grain sign outside claims it's "a little taste of heaven". I hope it proves to be just that because this place is nestled a block from The South End Buttery and across from South End Formaggio at 275 Shawmut Avenue. Both the Buttery and Formaggio enjoy a strong, loyal following, but that doesn't mean Wholy Grain can't thrive. One thing that might help it in the mornings is that it opens at 7AM (30 minutes before places like the Buttery and Flour).
This tiny little place has limited seating but serves good coffee (I know I just tried my first cup), sandwiches, scones, muffins and tempting treats. You can check out their full menu here. I'll be stopping by again (and I'm sure again). Check out the coffee shop and let me know what you think.
If you can find a seat (there are a couple of tables) you can bring along your laptop and leverage their free WiFi... Password is: WholySmoke (cute right?)
