What is Civitas?

Civitas is about community!

We remember the 90’s! Back when Friday and Saturday nights were spent hanging out till late into the night at indie coffee shops listening to local musicians, poets, and artists of all flavors, making new friends, and meeting people from all walks of life.

We aren’t Starbucks and we’re not trying to be! This isn’t to knock mainstream coffee shops, in fact, we love ALL SORTS of coffee shops! The owners have visited more than 250 coffee shops in nearly every state throughout America, as well as coffee shops in Europe and Central America.

Our goal at Civitas is simple; provide a laid back, inviting atmosphere, where people can sit back and chill, enjoying a nice conversation or good music.

Civitas literally means “community”!
