Tisane Coffee and Tea House

Posted by Kristin

I recently had a meeting for work at Tisane, a great coffee and tea house in the bustling West End of Hartford, CT.  Complete with a wide selection of teas, coffees, and baked goods, they also offer Asian fusion options for dinner and a swanky bar menu to boot. I didn't explore those options since it was only 9 in the morning but the atmosphere alone made me want to return.

Check it out:

Hartford, CT

On a sunny day (which this one was not), the front patio area would be perfect for a morning coffee.

Inside a sleek bar is  lined with eclectic lighting.

What first caught my eye was the gray-stained wood paneling on the walls. The custom art work didn't hurt either!

There was also this optical illusion that looks like a staircase that goes to nowhere...
These rustic shelves by the fireplace also caught my eye. Inspiration for a similar shelf in my new living room? I think so.
