Whenever my wife and I pay a visit to Auburn, Ala., where she grew up and we both went to college, I always plan a ride around my favorite coffee shop, Side Track. When it opened my senior year of college in 2013, it was a plywood counter in a space the size of a walk-in closet. Gradually, it grew to a space large enough to host my wedding rehearsal dinner the night before Abby and I tied the knot. Great coffee and warm service aside, it will always be a special place to me. And they happen to serve my favorite coffee bev – cold brew with a splash of chocolate milk. Which was especially refreshing on this hot and humid July ride.
