    Along with a donut at the donut shop>>LOL. By the way folks, especially with us having to read Tuesday's paper online, when that, COUNT DOWN, crap page happens, just quickly hit the BACK arrow, and it will take you out of that. As often as this occurs on this crummy site, you will save a LOT of time :-)

    No thanks. I will support local businesses such as Rosanna's and Choco Latte on Texas street for my cup of coffee.

    And what makes you think they're not a local business? They are located in Fairfield and they employ locals. What a strange comment, lol.

    I would love to try the vegan restaurant down town but with their hours I will never get the chance.

    It's not worth dying for a free cup of coffee and that's the risk you can take in this hell hole nowadays. It's target practice for thugs here now.

    Nice play on words 2real, I don't know if I want to sit in the long line for the free coffee I will have to see if the wife wants to or not. My daughter loves this place she goes with all her college friends.

    I would LOVE to show supprt & I've been waiting for this place to open as I am so addicted to coffee. However, offering something free in this dangerous area will attract problems. Not worth losing my life over. Ill stay home & use my Keurig.

    I dont think theres gonna be any problems as far as trouble makers are concern i think theres gonna be long lines though. If i do go this Friday ill have to keep in mind not to go at peak hours. Never tried this place but I feel as a Fairfield resident who discusses the lost of business to other cities or about creating a better community I need to go support a business who is taking a chance on Fairfield. I encourage everyone from Fairfield to take at least one trip to this business as a measure of thanks and actually buy something and not just take something for free. I drove by it today amd the small building actually looked nice, especially if you looked around, and wish these guys the best luck. By the way does anyone know whats good to get if I dont drink coffee? I sae their menu online and thought the green apple smoothie sound good but if anyone has recommendations im opened ear.
