While strolling along in very scenic Downtown Gainesville, you may feel the urge to sit down and take in the sights while sipping on a nice hot chocolate or coffee. One little café that offers you the chance to do just that is Maude’s at 101 SE 2nd Pl, right next to the Hippodrome Theatre. Yet another one of Gainesville’s hidden treasures, this little café has sandwiches, quesadillas, cakes, brownies, pies, and pastries with coffees, teas, hot chocolates, and beers to wash it all down with. There is seating both outside, where you can sit and chat with friends and soak in the sights of Downtown, and inside where you can choose from a variety of board games and let loose with friends. Even if you aren’t there to meet up with friends, there is plenty of space to study or get work done so feel free to stop by Maude’s any day of the week from 7 am to 11 pm to get your caffeine fix.
