  1. So nervous about what’s going to take over the Hedgehog space. The coffee shop that was there before it was horrendous. The coffee at Hedgehog might not have been the greatest but it was a nice little spot to go to in the morning and it will be missed. Surprisingly enough, this area of EP around Mohawk no longer has a coffee shop for the neighborhood. Nothing against them but I’m just not a fan of Tierra Mia. I wish I lived closer to Stories!

    • If your biggest issue is where you’re going to purchase coffee instead of just making it at your house, you are doing pretty good. Nothing to be nervous about… maybe the coffee isn’t helping your nerves?

  2. No!! I love the Hedgehog. Great food that was actually healthy, and really nice staff!
