1132 E St Catherine St, Louisville
We had all of our coffee spots picked up on our upcoming vacay in Louisville, until we drove by Full Stop, we knew we had to stop. Walking in, we loved the vibes. You walk up to the counter and you can order food and drink. Loved the menu, and many of the dishes are on or come with bread from local bakery Blue Dog. I ordered an altmilk iced latte. It was so delicious. We sat at the window and drank our beverages. When the weather is nice, you can sit outside. Loved this place and would definitely go back.
I have actual weekly cravings for the Biofuel (vegan cheeses, Blue Dog bread, fruit, jam, kimchi, pickled veg), $9. Best vegan cheese selection in town, too, in the fridges, and they sell Louisville Cream pints. (Now just hoping they'll stock the vegan honeycomb pistachio in the future.)
Whenever we're in the area we stop in for a nosh. I always get a scone and a smoothie and my wife always gets a coffee and a scone. They have great scones available and their smoothies are fantastic. This time my wife got the cold brew and she said it was delicious. The only issue is parking is a problem.
Why isn't this closer to my house?! Loved the atmosphere, the beverages, & the food. I ordered a peppermint oak milk latte and it was amazing. I then had a blackberry lemon vegan scone, also bomb, see photos. I stayed and worked on my laptop there for a couple hours and thoroughly enjoyed myself! Definitely recommend!
When in to get a peppermint mocha did not get a response of how you doing this morning I ordered my drink the menu is very confusing prices are a little bit high for what you order a 12 oz peppermint moc. is $5.72 when I picked up my drink they there was no response from staff saying bye thank you have a good day appreciate the business none of that don't know about the place yet I'll give it one more try and if it bombs out like this again I won't be back. "This is a response to a follow up visit ," I was greeted at the counter when I walked in, good morning, what can we get started you,very nice pleasant and welcomed response. I again ordered a peppermint mocha the reason I return for this visit was to see if they were going to be polite and more responsive to me ordering from this location felt really comfortable this time and doing it the peppermint mocha is the best I've had in this city and I go to every single one of these type shops I talked to a gentleman by the name of Philip who responded well to me I told him of the review that I had done last time I was here and he apologize that he did not respond as well as he could have but it might have been because they were so busy but I did appreciate him making the effort to look out for me and take care of business in a really good polite manner for which I'm here for I thank a beautiful tasting peppermint mocha it is well worth the money. THANK YOU .
Lovely staff, great for breakfast, cares about the community and the world that fits me. Definitely worth a (full) stop.
Very hard to pour a proper rosetta in a skim milk latte, but they did it here! Would definitely recommend.
This place is amazing!! Such a cool concept and SUCH delicious food. Can't wait to go back!
Very nice coffee. I'll be back for sure
Visited Full Stop for the first time over the weekend, and I can't wait to go back! I had That Good Green Latte and it was incredibly good. I would normally order a mocha (which according to my boyfriend was also delicious), but I love matcha and was so glad I ordered something different. Not only did it taste phenomenal and unique, but it also looked beautiful! I had to post photo and review.
Great barista, amazing gluten free donuts, delicious matcha. I had the breakfast sandwich on a gluten free waffle and it was perfect. Definitely will be back if I visit Louisville again!
Ok. I do love this place. It's been on my list forever. Call it the millennial in me, but I'm a sucker for rehabbed converted buildings, unisex bathrooms, succulents, local novelties on sale, spring mix, biodegradable straws, and a coffee shop where I can sit forever reading, studying, or chatting with my cousin about her wedding planning for hours. I'll be back many times again. Should I eat breakfast here every weekend? I'm thinking yes.
I work at the barbershop across the street. Some of the nicest people everytime. I highly recommend for a safe way environment. Delicious breakfast and support your locals!
Amazing service, incredible coffee... Highly recommend!
Great coffee....they sell local farm fresh products. They offer beer as well. Great place to study or meet up with friends.
This place is great! Farm meat, eggs, jams, cheese.....coffee, beer, soda, kombucha, smoothies, tea.....the list goes on! Open every day 7 to 7.....great view. They have a kitchen and serve breakfast and lunch. Nice menu, friendly staff, cut place. Great location.
INCREDIBLE breakfast sandwich. And I was able to pick up a dozen fresh eggs. Great atmosphere. Place is a gem!
The hostess,Victoria was so courteous and polite. I definitely will visit again and bring a friend.
I love this quaint, little coffee shop! The coffee (i had the spooky spice latte) was great. The staff was very friendly. The inside is cute, cozy, and bright. Great for reading/studying.
If you ever wish your fave coffee shop had more food options -- without being a restaurant -- Full Stop is the place for you. I loved my latte and my prosciutto baguette, and if I had wanted more, Full Stop has other great options on the menu plus a market with grab-and-go options and groceries plus drinks and beer in a refrigerated case. The beer selection also wasn't too shabby. And best yet, it still has a comfortable vibe. I thought that with the fast to-go capabilities of Full Stop that it might not be the best option for getting out the lappy and working a bit, but I was wrong. The seats were comfortable, and the Wi-Fi was easy to connect to and fast. It also has several outlets. There were a few other people working in Full Stop as well. Really, Full Stop is the real deal. I will be making my way to Full Stop again soon, to try more food, drinks and to pick up some beer.
Was a very cute place and staff was friendly enough, prices were slightly on the high side for local coffee, but I’ll still be back, the coffee was good!
A novel concept shop - half café, half convenience store. Highlights include car charging station, fresh-baked bread, locally-sourced meats, vegan cheeses, and cold brew. We came here as a pit stop and coffee break after getting lunch at New Wave Burritos en route to Lexington, KY. The space is air-y and bright, very inviting. Our cold coffee drinks were good for what we were after, but we were disappointed to learn that alternative milks are an extra $1. Overall the product assortment seems unfocused. I understand the approachability of a pack of M&M's, but find it strange merchandised next to gourmet local chocolate, vegan jerky, and artisan jams.
I love this new coffee shop! It's cute, hipster, and very open. Loving the white color scheme! You can sit inside and outside and there's lots of natural light. They've got a tiny little parking lot, but parallel parking can be easily found as well. Looks like it used to be a car shop, since it's got that sorta vibe with the garage door. They serve food here, which looked good! You can also buy snacks! They sell merch if you want to rep. The prices are elevated! Probably higher than other coffee shop options in the city. But they've got the trendy stuff! They have oat milk and macadamia milk ! You can also add CBD to your espresso. I ordered a lavender latte with oat milk. Yum!! My sister got That Good Matcha Latte, which had matcha and CBD. She got it with oat milk. My friend got cold brew with half breve with pumps of vanilla. They've got vegan baked goods for ya! And non-vegan too. Staff was nice! They also have two gender neutral bathrooms!
Has the BEST owners--run by a team of experienced baristas who are very invested in the quality of the espresso shots they pull. FULL KITCHEN, which means lunch + great coffee is now an option. I tried a shot of espresso with a churro scone, the cappuccino, and the iced latte. Everything was SO GOOD. Possibly the best scone I've ever had. Plus, cups and straws were biodegradable. Good atmosphere all around.
Great food and delicious drinks. The staff are super friendly and it’s a great place to meet for lunch or sit and do some work on the WiFi
One of the nicest coffee shops I’ve ever been to! I’m absolutely in love with the place. Staff is very friendly and deserve the world. 10/10 would die for them
Easily in my top three Louisville coffee shops. Excellent coffee, excellent food, fantastic staff. They have a cool little mini grocery, sell beer, just extended their hours, and upgraded their AC. Their SALAD SANDWICH is good. A SANDWICH MADE OF SALAD and they made it good. Do yourself a favor and come support this badass business.
A unique concept as far as Louisville coffee shops go. Vibe-wise it's a coffee shop through and through, but they also feature a somewhat expanded set of prepared food choices (the menu didn't appeal personally, but appeared sufficiently hipster-friendly, as you might expect), and a bodega-like set of grocery items (again, none of which personally appealed, and I wondered to myself who would come here to buy a dozen eggs and a pound of bacon). Anyway, the coffee (or at least the espresso) is Ritual from SF, very well prepared, and there is plenty of comfortable seating if you're looking to hang out and work/study a while, which I did. The one thing I didn't care for was the price of my 12-oz americano. At $3.71 (incl tax), it cost more than at *any* other coffee shop in town (yes, I've been to *all* of them), and a full $1.10 more than at Starbucks. Oddly, none of their other coffee drinks seemed out of line with local prices, and annoying, the americano isn't on their price list (which usually means it's the same price as an equivalent espresso, but that's not the case here). Now that I know, I'll may just do the espresso ($2.50) next time...
So happy to have this in the neighborhood. The Blue Dog Bread (and apparently Nancy's Bagel) deliveries, and other fresh, local ingredients make for a great menu.
smoothest ice americano i ever had. yummy :)
The bee free latte is delicious! The vegan scone is good too. Also, they have two free Level 2 EV charging stations.
Went for lunch today and really enjoyed it. It's bright and airy inside and there seemed to be a lot of people that come in there to work and hang out. Tiny parking lot but there are some EV charging stations street side. My husband and I each had a kale and arugula salad (sans onions) and we split the prosciutto baguette. Both were really good, the salad was light and refreshing and went really well with the sandwich. We're a big fan of Blue Dog Bakery so we love that they use their bread! We also got matcha lattes with macadamia milk to go. It was our first time trying matcha and we really liked it. They have burgers on their menu as well so I'd like to come back and try them as well as try their coffee. We'll definitely be back!
Everything about this place is perfect. As someone new to the city, I can really attest to the fact that everyone here is beyond welcoming and helpful. On top of that, the food and drinks are d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s.. Thank you for existing :)
Nice, laid back vibe with great coffee, and an extensive selection of tasty vegetarian and vegan offerings. Plenty of seating indoors and out. Nice offering of quality market items. Generous happy hour. Puppy friendly and fantastic service. Not Starbucks!
Best coffee in Louisville. Diverse staff and incredibly thoughtful and friendly touches that make people feel welcome. I can't go anywhere else now without wishing I'm at Full Stop!
The coffee was very good. The foam was creamy and had a pretty design. The coffee it self was smooth with a good amount of richness throughout. Definitely would come again. Coffee: 5/5 Atmosphere: 3/5 Service: 5/5
Quick service, amazing food, a nice location, and healthy fresh farm and local food options to go. A low stress, easy stop on a day out. Love their many options. Let's be honest. I came for the avocado toast! The avocado toast did not disappoint. I hope to stop by again to study in the beautiful sunlit room, or grab a bite or coffee to go. A fun, full stop.
New spot down the street from me serving quality food, coffee, and beers with great seating and plenty of picnic tables out front. They also have some grocery items available. Excited to see what they do next.
