New business in downtown Youngstown caters to caffeine lovers

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - There's a new spot in downtown Youngstown for people who crave caffeine.

Friends Specialty serves coffee, tea and hot cocoa from its new location on the corner of Federal and Phelps Streets.

It's the creation of Mitch and Patricia Lynch who've been operating the Friends Roastery in Salem for the past decade.

The decor is just as important as the beverages at the couple's new business.

"We've got a 1800s work table between my kitchen and a hood from Pittsburgh, fabricated. It's an old gun metal color with rivets. That's what we try to have here. It's an industry look. It's a kind of homage to Youngstown's industry," said Mitch Lynch.

Lynch says the business gets advice from what he calls a "coffee guru."
