For months friends have been encouraging me to visit Conspire and today the weather was nice so I stopped in for a visit. Since Conspire has very limited indoor seating it isn’t a good choice for a large group, unless the weather is nice.

If the weather is nice, you have your choice of about 3 park benches in the yard. That’s where I sat (along with some friends).

The inside of the shop is small and cozy, with bar seating. It’s a single room with a variety of grocery / art products. Along the front wall is a counter with an espresso machine. The barista on hand today made my drink and asked me if I wanted my drink “for here.”

My cappuccino was $2.75 and they did a great job with it, as you can see in my photo. I’ll definitely be back for more.

The exterior of the building is painted with a mural. There are images of sharks, contraptions, and other shapes on the side of the building.

While seated on the park benches you’ll be able to strike up a conversation with the people walking past.

  1. Conspire is my favorite meeting place downtown. Great coffee and baked goods, especially for vegans.

  2. Glad you made it over there! I love their coffee and their vegan donuts are great. I really think they have the best espresso in CenPho.

    901 North 5th St. or 901 South 5th St?

  4. Dave, it is North 5th St. Sorry about that, I updated the address in the post.

  5. Glad to see so many of you love Conspire! I will definitely be back.

    Curious: How do you all feel about the theme? They have a rebel kind of a purpose and it appears to work.

    I’m just curious how many of their customers would equate themselves with this lifestyle?

  6. Me, not so much. I’m a pretty regular sort of character – not a fregan, serial protester or activist. Aside from the coffee, what I like about Conspire is that it’s a great place to go and talk to people you know, and run into people you met before. It’s a pretty inviting place.

  7. anyone know where they get their coffee from?

  8. Luis, they get it from Cartel Coffee Lab. At least the beans for the espresso. Not sure about the drip.
