Momentum Coffee serves coffee, tea, sandwiches, and pastries. We source our products from local partners. Some of the beans are roasted in our very own roastery called Momentum Roasters. The menu will change based on availability and rotate with the season.
Momentum prides itself on a coffee forward menu. This means that the coffee is the feature in the drinks we make, the flavors compliment the coffee. There is a wide variety of espresso based drinks. Customers may also order any drink in the decaf version. We are known for our brewed coffee. The coffee is locally roasted and ground daily to ensure freshness and coffee that will power you throughout the day. During the summer month the cold brew / iced coffee is ordered most. Try it plain or add any flavor shot to make it your own.
Momentum is known for its coffee forward Lattes. We have many flavor options: vanilla, sugar-free vanilla, caramel, sugar-free caramel, hazelnut, sugar free hazelnut, French vanilla, amaretto, cherry, strawberry, honey and green mint, gingerbread, mocha, and white mocha.
We also sell Dark Matter cold brew cans in our grab and go fridge.

For our tea lovers we have a great assortment of teas. We have green, black and herbal teas year-round. We also serve tea lattes. Both the traditional Marsala Chai and non-caffeinated Turmeric Ginger Chai are a hit and also served year-round either iced or hot.
In our pursuit to keep things fun in the summer months we developed our own signature Tea Lemonade Drinks to join the Matcha Lemonade. Momentum baristas developed the Chili Mango Tea Lemonade – described as “tastes like summer” and the Turmeric Ginger Chai Tea Lemonade that provides the right balance of zing, sweet and deliciousness.
