The Stephen Pace Gallery is for serious collectors only, but the New Harmony Coffee House is a welcoming place to sip a latte, read the newspaper and mingle with locals.
At the New Harmony Coffee Shop and Stephen Pace Gallery, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the quality of the coffee and the friendliness of the greetings. The coffeehouse is cozy in the best way, with comfortable seating, hand-painted tables, free wireless Internet and shelves of books you can borrow. We spent a happy hour here on a Sunday morning, watching the locals come and go, almost always simply ordering "the usual." Attached to the coffeehouse is the Stephen Pace Gallery, featuring the work of a renowned abstract expressionist painter who died in 2010. Everything is for sale, but it doesn't come cheap: Paintings top out at $25,000. Still, it's worth a quick peek as you sip your latte and plan the rest of your day in New Harmony.
