Where to get a cup of coffee in Kent

Employee Owen Park prepares a cup of coffee at Tree City in downtown Kent on April 7, 2014.

College students basically have coffee running through their veins. Luckily, Kent has several coffee options downtown for students to get their fix.

There are a number of locally-owned coffee shops that offer unique drinks, but don’t worry. If you need your Starbucks or Dunkin’ to get you going, we have that too.
