We love Fort Thomas so much we named the shop after it. Whether you’re third generation or you just moved here, we’re inviting you in. Hang out, let your guard down and enjoy the space. We live right around the corner, and are settled in for the long haul. In fact, when you make it to the top of the Swim Club waitlist, we’ll still be here. Fuel up with coffee, lunch, snacks, and creative sweetness. We’re for this town, and for you.

The Valentines

David, Lori and their kids Mac, Honor and Kit make up the family team of FTC. We’re all in this together, so if you visit FTC, you’re bound to run into a Valentine. 

Lori runs the biz and makes a mean skinny vanilla latte. David takes his coffee black and puts words and color on things like signs and tees. Mac is a smoothie + protein kind of kid and carefully counts the register at close. Honor goes for the fanciest Icy & Blended and she’ll happily make one for you (with a big dose of conversation on the side). Kit likes her milk chocolate and her juice in a box. She can carry 3 bags of bagels at once. She’s pretty strong.
