500 W Idaho St #100, Boise, ID, United States
Before Starbucks, coffee shops were sort of beatnik kinds of places. Think Greenwich Village. That's the kind of vibe at Flying M. It's been in downtown Boise for decades, way before any other coffee shops made an appearance.
Flying M has great lattes, pastries, sandwiches, quiches, tea, and more. Inside the coffeehouse is an artsy gift shop, and local artists' pieces hang on the walls. Eclectic is defined by Flying M. The college crowd hangs out on their laptops, the teens come here to be seen, and the old hippies come here because they wouldn't be caught dead in Starbucks.
