Having a hectic week? Finding yourself forgetting important things like pants when you walk out the door? Perhaps it’s time for a hiatus from whatever madness has overcome your schedule. So grab your Keep-It-Local card, head on over to Café Evoke  and knock back whatever your caffeine-addicted heart may desire.

For those of you avoiding caffeine (a wily temptress, to be sure), Evoke also serves an assortment of seasonal, loose leaf teas as well as an apple cider that tastes like half your grandpa’s prize-winning orchard squeezed into one cup (seasoned from your grandmum’s spice cabinet, of course). Also, if you’re looking for something with a bit more kick, Evoke is also a fully functioning coffee BAR, which here means you over-21s can indulge in a locally crafted beer or a fun wine from a perpetually revolving list.

As for you coffee aficionados, you’ll be happy to know Evoke is home to a thriving community of fellow coffee culture lovers. Grab a hand-brewed Ethiopian and bask in the ambiance provided by wide open spaces, local artist Dylan Bradway‘s massive wall piece, and music handpicked by the talented and tasteful baristas who will be serving you the best of America’s roasters.

Café Evoke purchases their delectable beans from several American coffee roasters and rotates these products on a regular basis. (Handmade and Damn Handsome and Verve are personal favorites, particularly the Ethiopian and Guatemalan roasts.)

  • MADCAP COFFEE ROASTERS / GRAND RAPIDS, MI
  • PT’S COFFEE / TOPEKA, KS
  • VERVE COFFEE ROASTERS / SANTA CRUZ, CA
  • HANDSOME COFFEE ROASTERS / LA, CA
  • BATDORF AND BRONSON COFFEE ROASTERS / OLYMPIA, WA
  • ELEMENTAL COFFEE ROASTERS / OKLAHOMA CITY, OK

In addition to providing coffee of the highest quality, Evoke supplies an exquisite selection of freshly made noms that are always lounging seductively behind a glass case. From made-fresh-daily sandwiches to assorted pastries worth the extra padding, they’ve got the perfect goods to complement a steaming cup of joe.

Got a bad case of caffeine withdrawal? There’s hope for you! Squint your eyes, muscle through the pain, and run over to Café Evoke to show your undying support for one of our favorite local businesses.

    First of all, I really like how you defined the word ‘evoke’ before you start talking about the café. It really set the tone for the rest of your post. The picture is also a really nice touch. Do they actually have cups at Café Evoke that has the word ‘evoke’ on them? A very winning description of the various types of food and drinks served. It sounds like this place has it all. I appreciate you giving the store hours and location. Sometimes local places don’t have store hours online, so thanks for putting it up! I think what would have made your review complete is describing the appearance and atmosphere of the café. Still sounds like a place to check out for sure though!

    Having grown up in Edmond, the northern part of the ‘burbs was missing the modern vibe and locality that Evoke offers. I’ve only been there once, but I imagine if they had been around when I was in high school I would have spent many an hour there.

    If you’re looking for a hole-in-the-wall coffee shop in OKC, check out the Beatnix Café. I just discovered this gem. They have more of a college-meets-starving-artist feel, but without the heavy traffic of a college campus. They have limited hours, but check it out if you’re spending the day in midtown/uptown OKC. http://www.thebeatnixcafe.com/

    Jenny, I love! You so cleverly describe one of Edmond’s proudest “moments” in Evoke Cafe. And, you seem like somewhat of a coffee connaisseur yourself! Thanks for including hours, location, roasters, etc.
    Did you know that they’ll soon be adding a huge community board on the blank wall to the right when you walk in? I’m guessing they’ll post community info, as well as a chalk board with the barista’s pick of the day for brews and coffees. I’m pretty stoked about this. :)
