There's a new(ish) coffee shop in Roanoke called City Bliss and I'm a little obsessed with supporting them. We've had a local chain called Mill Mountain downtown for years but it's good to have a variety of places to choose from and City Bliss has that indie, one-off feel that we desperately need in the downtown scene. It's fresh, run by young people and serves some drinks that are hard to come by like bubble tea...yum.
I visit City Bliss at least once a week and my two favorites for summer have been their iced coffee and of course bubble tea. I recommend them to everyone and as a bonus they have live music on the weekends, free wifi and a cool loft space to hang out in. I'm hoping City Bliss will be a new staple in the small business community. big kiss, bekuh
