New Friend at the River Nile

Met another blogger in the real world, yesterday. Jason Simmons is a great guy with an amazing story of God's grace. Our visit was a great time of laughter, sharing stories and encouragement. Since we both live in Keller, (or at least our mail does) I'm looking forward to getting to know Jason better in the weeks ahead. Check out his website here and his blog here.

He's also a generous guy, because he blessed me with one of the resources from my wishlist, "The Creative Leader" by Ed Young! Thanks Jason!

As a footnote, let me add that we met at a new coffee shop (open just over 30 days) in Keller called "The River Nile Coffee Shop." Website is still under construction.

The quick review is:

Atmosphere:
About even with Lynn's & better than many Starbucks (with free wi-fi)
Coffee:
Much better than Lynn's and about even with Starbucks, but I only had a redeye at my first meeting and a white chocolate moca later.

I actually went back later in the day for a second meeting and I'm sure I'll be sippin' java again and surfin' the free wi-fi at "The River Nile" real soon. But I gotta say that the mummy who tries to kill you after you place your order is probably over the top.

Ok.

I'm just kidding.

There's no mummy.

Espresso and shocking surprises would be a bad combination. :)

Ha! Let's get together. We need to spend some time with the older and wiser Pastor and Mrs. Leckie family!

Hey guys, I loved meeting at the OLD TOWN COFFEE house in keller. The place is actually an old farm house with a wooded backyard. The coffee is the best that I have had around here. Free internet was super fast fiber optic. The best part was the food, great grilled sandwiches for only $4.99 with chips and a pickle. The place is unreal. It is brand new, I first read reviews about it on the Keller website. Later, Brian

Yes, Old Town Coffee, it is located at 126 Taylor St, at the 377/1709 intersection, right behind Capital One bank

Hi, Brian,

Haven't been to the Old Town Coffee House in Keller, yet. Didn't even know it was there.

Thanks for the info. I'll check it out and post a review!
