Burning the Midnight Oil

It came along way after we left but we enjoy a visit every time we come back. I really didn’t even enjoy coffee until way after college, but if I did, I’d live at Midnight Oil.

Our barista was an old friend and greeted us immediately as we came it. It was good to reminisce a bit and then order our coffee. I don’t get fancy – I stay with Americanos – sometimes simple dark roast. Knowing this coffeehouse supports worldwide efforts I anticipated the unique worldwide flavor of an Arkansan roasted coffee. It didn’t disappoint. We also decided to try the pies from the pie selection.

Midnight Oil is probably the most popular gathering spot near the campus of Harding University. Often filled with students the coffeehouse provides an intimate atmosphere where students can study, socialize and just hang out. On this day we were not alone in the coffeehouse but since the students at Harding were on Christmas break, we enjoyed a somewhat solitude cup of coffee and slice of pie before promenading across the campus to see the Christmas lights.

It’s always a pleasure to stop and see the excitement at Midnight Oil.
