Tri Cities is having a resurgence of small businesses and I am loving it!
The Local has been open for some time now but I finally found this gem and feel the need to shout it from the mountains. Tucked in off of Gage Rd in Richland, the Local is awesome! With simplistic decor and clean lines galore, this coffee shop is cozy without feeling rushed. A few tables, some couches and outdoor seating make this place feel like home.
With a simple menu and delicious paninis this is the perfect place to dish about your week with a girlfriend, work on the computer with the free wifi, or spend some quite time with yourself and a cup of Joe.
Only downside, it is in a strip mall. I guess that means good parking but what is with the Tri Cities and strip malls? I will never get it.
