Latte Happy Hour...yum. 50 cents off your late afternoon pick-me-up. What we really love about this coffeehouse is how the sandwiches are named after nearby streets (Boston Street, Hagert Street, etc.) and they carry famous Stock's Bakery pound cake...in case you need something to go with your sweet beverage.
Speaking of sweet, we have a sweet house in walking distance from Leotah's...1932 E. Arizona Street is a must-see 3 Bedroom 3 Bath home in this super sweet location that puts you right in the middle of the action. Just check out our map below.
