City & State- Memphis, TN

There aren't a lot of what you would call artisan coffee shops in the city of Memphis but City & State stands out as a clear favorite. 

The shop is a cozy mixture between artisan coffee and carefully curated retail offerings. We ended up getting our coffee to go as the small space was pretty full but browsed the retail side before we left. I'm a sucker for cute enamel pins since they're affordable and small souvenirs. I picked one up here that aptly says, "Yay coffee!"
