NSU is a unique and lively campus, but that doesn’t mean that Sharks can’t band together and take an afternoon to explore the South Florida area — even if that just means finding a quaint place to study.
If there’s one thing you can count on Fort Lauderdale for, it’s the aesthetic hangout spots. The Revenant Coffeehouse and Eatery, which is attached to a furniture store named Cargo, delivers just that — giving Ikea a run for its money.
Located just on the outskirts of Oakland Park, the coffee shop offers fresh selections to snack on like naan slices and dip, along with coffee and tea. While the shop offers the typical drinks like a cappuccino and double shots of espresso, they also have unique creations like the “Blooming Tea,” which has a flower that blooms while it steeps, and “The Expression,” which is the Revenant’s signature roast infused with rosemary and sugar. The space is cozy enough for intimate conversations, like on a date, or quiet book sessions, but offers enough seating for a group of friends.
Like to feel at one with nature? Then, you’re in luck because The Revenant sits right on the water with plenty of outdoor seating, letting you enjoy the scenery to your heart’s content. If you’re like me, and more of an indoors-y person, you’re still in for a unique experience. The art pieces, table sets and other pieces from Cargo also act as furnishings for the shop. Now, you can sip tea while imagining how amazing your living room would look with the original pieces Cargo has to offer.The pieces are also up for sale should you feel the need to treat yourself.
