  • Clyde Coffee opened this month on Higgins Avenue, serving up Black Coffee Roasting Co. beans.

The vibe
: Owner Glenda Bradshaw says she hopes Clyde will feel like a comfortable spot to chat with friends or host small meetings. As for the menu, Bradshaw opted to highlight classic drinks, such as lattes, Americanos and plain drip, with an emphasis on quality. “The trend in specialty coffee is to get back to a more clean, simplified coffee menu,” she says. Beans are provided by Black Coffee Roasting Company. Lovers of tea can also choose from a selection provided by Lake Missoula Tea Company.

Meow mix
: Bradshaw named Clyde in honor of her old cat, a big orange-and-white tabby. Clyde the Cat went missing in Bradshaw’s neighborhood last year and hasn’t turned up since, but his memory lives on in the shop’s name and its wi-fi password.

What to nosh on
: Satisfy a sweet tooth with an array of baked goods provided by Black Cat Bakery, or try the savory breakfast items made in-house, including avocado toast and steel-cut oatmeal. One of the most popular offerings so far is the Turkish breakfast ($6.95), which was inspired by meals Bradshaw and her husband ate while on a trip to Istanbul. It includes slices of cucumber, tomato, toast, hard-boiled egg, yogurt and berries. “It’s really fresh and yummy,” she says.

Where to find it: Clyde Coffee is located at 610 S. Higgins Ave., near Bridge Pizza, and is open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Most breakfast items are served until about 1 p.m.
