Big Momma's Coffee and Espresso Bar offers great specialty coffee drinks, gourmet sandwiches, healthy salads and homemade pastries. Great community gathering spot in the Commercial Street historic district.
Years later, my mother and I were inside Big Momma's Coffee Shop on Historic Commercial Street in Springfield, MO. The atmosphere reminded me so much of Cusco, Peru. People were shuffling in and out. Young professionals, business owners, artisans and others seemed to share in a sense of community with one another. There was something special about C-street that I hadn’t experienced elsewhere in Springfield. The thought passed my mind, “This is the place and this is the time to make my thought a reality.”
One of my favorite parts of living in Springfield are all of the awesome experiences that come along with it. I love to share those with friends, family and smiling strangers. This Christmas I decided modernize my own twelve days of Christmas, Springfield style.
