The Devour Cafe!

The Devour Cafe was established way back in the year 2010. Times were different then. Things moved a bit slower. The idea that a grilled panini sandwich Cafe could serve fresh savory slices of heaven at a low price wasn't so revolutionary back in those simpler times.

In the several months that followed it's inception, Devour grew and expanded on it's original mission. Now offering more than just a great place to meet up for a sandwich, Devour incorporated a take-away counter, offering choice in an era of choicelessness, and letting patrons decide if they want to eat in, or grab something for later, whichever they choose.

It's been a long haul. But now looking back, it's safe to say that Devour has established what must be the finest grilled panini sandwich shop ever to be located on Olympic avenue, in front of jerry's and walmart. Conveniently placed in Springfield, offering competitively priced delicious savory sandwiches, Devour has come a long way from it's humble origins. And we are here today to celebrate that fact.


Do you have a Facebook page? Do you use a smartphone to check that page? If you do, next time you're in the Devour Cafe, "check-in" on Devour's Facebook page and show us to receive a sweet dessert treat on the house! Just our way of giving back to those of you who give us so much Facebook love.

Iced Coffee greatness

Here at Devour we're always looking for new and exciting ways to get our caffeine fix. And Vietnamese Iced Coffee has been one of our favorite ways to get that sweet black gold pumping through our veins.

This recipe (from has everything we love in a cold coffee drink. It's easy to make, and tastes amazing:


  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup dark roast ground coffee beans
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 16 ice cubes


  1. Brew coffee with water using your preferred method to make brewed coffee. Spoon 2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk into each of 4 coffee cups. Pour 1 cup of fresh hot coffee into each cup, and stir to dissolve the milk.
  2. Serve guests cups of coffee, and give each one a tall glass with 4 ice cubes, and a long handled spoon. Guests pour hot coffee over the ice cubes and stir briskly with the long handled spoon, making an agreeable clatter with the ice cubes to chill the coffee.                 

It's a great way to get your caffeine, and pairs amazingly well with a Devour Sandwich, of course. We make it with Pacori Coffee at home, but if there is enough interest we'll start serving in the Devour Cafe! So what do you think? Should Devour start making Vietnamese Iced Coffee? Let us know!
