Bottoms Up Coffee could be famous for a lot of things. For example, its Rainy Day Coffee is ridiculously cool: The joint will serve you a cup of steaming hot joe (or hot cocoa), served with a cloud of cotton candy suspended over the top. The coffee’s steam makes the cloud rain sweet droplets directly into the cup of coffee. Artistry!

And, if you watch their social media, you’ll find additional treasures like a colorful latte sampler in beet, turmeric and matcha; the variants line up to look like a stoplight when served (red, yellow, green).  

Beyond the land of creative beverages, though, it serves as an incubator for Ohio food projects. On its menu, you’ll find a host of options made by small operations. 

Case in point, hearty empanadas made by Latin Cravings Factory. They come in a plethora of flavors, including a traditional, comforting beef flavor, as well as some edgier veggie versions, including one that is all mushrooms, lavishly packed inside of a tender, fresh-toasted shell. The empanadas are served with rippled potato chips, for those who need extra crunchies in their lives. Priced under five bucks, it’s a ridiculous value. 

You can continue in the pocket-theme with a pop-tart from Happy Little Treats. Alternately, Bottoms Up also hosts a brownie project from Sum Sweet. The selection is built on over-the-top, loaded baked goods. The strawberry brownie (well, more of a pink-ie, than a brown-ie) tastes like a party: A dense, fruity strawberry base is loaded with chunked-up golden sandwich cookies, white chips, and just enough sprinkles to cement the entire celebratory angle. 

More menu exploring finds Tupelo in the house as well. You might know them for their transcendent doughnuts, but they’re also the provider of the house zucchini sandwiches. It’s vegetarian-friendly, and guests can find vegan and gluten-free options as well. 

You can find Bottoms Up Coffee, and its guest-stars, at 1069 W. Broad St. in Franklinton. It’s open Monday to Saturday from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
