The founders of the Sarasota, Fla., specialty bakery The Lollicake Queen have opened their much-anticipated adjacent coffee shop, the Perq Coffee Bar. Naturally, the shop has a top-notch bakery program, but the first thing that jumps out to coffee people is the bright green Slayer espresso machine.
Here’s more from a recent profile in Sarasota Magazine on Perq’s drink program:
If you’re looking for a traditional coffee shop experience here, you won’t find it; in fact, the drink names of many of the coffees on the menu will probably be a little unfamiliar to you. Instead of a latte, cappuccino or Frappuccino, you’ll order a “pull” (a double shot of espresso), a “gibraltar” (a double shot with 3 oz. of steamed milk) or a “flat white” (steamed milk poured over a double shot of espresso), among others.
