222 Artisan Bakery & Cafe

If we as a society have learned anything from 90s sitcoms, it’s that the most fascinating and important events of our life happen in coffee shops. 222 provides the ultimate coffeeshop for “friends” to go through life together. Within walking distance of the Wildey Theatre and the Madison Court House, it is truly in the center of Edwardsville, Illinois. Whether you’re taking in the city of Edwardsville for the first time or just on your normal commute to work. 222 is perfect for you. 

If you have time to sit in, you will be rewarded for your time. The walls are lined with eclectic modern art, the staff is friendly, and the overall ambiance is one of comfort and serenity. The Artisan Bakery & Cafe is great for breakfast or lunch with a menu including biscuits & gravy, homemade pastries, sandwiches, giant cinnamon rolls and more. You’ll have to make it fast though, because the  homemade bread at 222 sells out quickly!

Of course, it is a coffee shop with countless coffees. 222 offers everything from the classic cappuccino to the trendy chai tea latte. 222 Is a great spot to complete some remote work, meet friends, and enjoy the views of Edwardsville’s main street and Madison County Courthouse. When visiting Edwardsville, Illinois, the 222 Artisan Bakery & Cafe is a must-go.
