Golden Thyme Coffee & Cafe Review

Over the weekend, I decide to take a quick jaunt to St.Paul to check out a black owned coffee shop called Golden Thyme Coffee & Cafe. I hate to admit it, but this was this first time visiting in it's sixteen year existence. Since it's Black History Month, I really wanted to make an effort to support this black owned business.



The first thing I noticed was all the African American decor. Black statutes and artwork filled the shop which was a pleasant change of scenery.






There was a relaxed vibe in this coffee shop. That Saturday morning let-me-head-down-to-the-coffee-shop kind of feel. I listened as they happily greeted their customers by name. You just don't see that nowadays.

And the customer service? Well let's just say I'm a big on customer service and it was A1! Everyone was nice and treated me well.


You might be asking, "But how was your coffee?" Absolutely delicious! Nice and sweet like I like it. I will definitely be back!



They even have a place for meetings and such. Every Thursday from 7pm-8:30pm they host a Spoken Word event for the youth in the area. Oh, and I can't forget about the annual Jazz Festival they host every year. Stay tuned for more info about that in the future.

Want to visit Golden Thyme for yourself? Check out their Facebook page for more info and upcoming events. Plus, you can find their address in our Minnesota Noir Business Directory.


Have you ever been to Golden Thyme before? What Black Owned businesses to you like to support?

  4. I try to support all small businesses no matter race/gender/ethnicity, etc. Being a small business owner is tough so and I feel it is important to keep my money local. With that said, I would love to go to a coffee shop like this!!
