Mmmmm... fine desserts! My mouth waters just reading this menu, because I've tried some of them. Now that my taste buds have experienced them I can't help but salivate just reading the names.

Insomnia Loves Artists, too.

These two young artists left a wonderful piece of art at Insomnia Coffee Company. "The best coffee" it says at the bottom. I'm amazed at how many times I've already heard that about Insomnia Coffee. One older gentleman, a coffee aficionado who has traveled around the world, said he has never tasted better coffee anywhere.

Everyone is an artist, some just don't know it. You can find some drawing pads, crayons, and colored pencils on the game and book shelves at the rear of the coffee house.

Insomnia Coffee Company is ready for the warmer weather. Of course they have the usual iced coffees and teas. Then there is Vitamin Water, apple juice, and orange juice. But Insomnia has some special cold drinks ready for summer. Here are three:

~Summer Eclipse~ A refreshing spin on your average iced tea.

~The Gorilla~ Blended dark chocolate mocha with real banana.

~Tahitian Vanilla Latte~ A delicious blended vanilla latte.

There are more, and as always with Insomnia, more to come.

Blues this Saturday

Hillsboro could sure use a shot of the blues, and Don Haupt is the artist who can deliver it. He'll be on stage at Insomnia Coffee Company from 9pm. If you're a blues fan, you may already know Don. If not, this is your chance to get acquainted with some fine work.

His music speaks for itself, but I'll let Don's explanation from his MySpace site give you a clue:

Foot-stompin', guitar smackin', screamin' and hollerin' delta blues. No froofy singer-songwriter tearjerkers thrown in between tracks....just blues. Some folks calls it roots blues, some calls it folk blues, some calls it delta blues, but everybody calls it blues. Done old school like it should be, one man and an acoustic guitar.

Could'na said it better myself. Be there for a great time. Saturday, June 2nd 9pm.

“I merely took the energy it takes to pout and wrote some blues.”
Duke Ellington

Jesse Bray

Insomnia Coffee Company was packed Saturday night with Jesse Bray and his band playing a mix of folk/rock/country tunes. Music, drinks, and treats were enjoyed by all.
