The aesthetic pop of lavender at 3601 S. Florida Ave. is officially open. Meet happyfastdelicious, a drive-thru coffee shop that prides itself on fast service and a community-based approach. Swing by for coffee, energy drinks, sodas, seltzers, and more.
We had the chance to meet with owner Andrew Nesi to talk all things coffee, community, and of course — purple.
Purple straws, purple blenders, purple tables, purple garbage cans — you name it, it’s purple. The colorful nature speaks to Andrew’s vision: Providing a space where customers can dream up their own wild (or simple) creations and share them with others.

What we tried
City editor Rilee’s cookie butter cold brew is a medium cold brew with one pump of cookie butter syrup (think: The flavor of those airplane Biscoff cookies) and dulce de leche-infused cold foam. If you like your drinks on the sweeter side, you can increase your cookie butter pumps.
City editor Connor paid homage to a summer staple with her creation: The Con-fire. This s’mores-esque blended latte has three shots of espresso, two pumps of vanilla, two pumps of toasted marshmallow, and a chocolate-drizzled cup. Topped with whipped cream, this super-sweet concoction is bonfire ready.
