A new cafe, offering coffee and tea and more, has opened up shop in the neighborhood. Called The Optimist, the fresh arrival is located at 1000 Brookside Drive, Suite #109, in North Central.

In addition to drip coffee, you'll also find espressos, cappuccinos and more on the menu. In the mood for something different? Try the strawberry mocha. This spot also serves up a variety of different pastries. 

The fresh addition has made a good impression thus far, with a 3.5-star rating out of three reviews on Yelp.

Holly K., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on May 21, wrote, "This spot has some delicious non-coffee drinks. If you are a fan of the coconut milk-based dragon/pink drinks at Starbucks, I think you'll love the options here even more. "

And Barry H. wrote, "My Oakwood Sunshine tasted like an orange creamsicle! My mom thought her strawberry mocha was 'different' and my dad liked his vanilla iced coffee."
