My wife will be in Huntsville for a few days this week testifying as an
expert witness vs the evil empire. Any suggestions of good coffee and
internet access around the Homewood Inn? Thanks.

Hummm, did she bring her own espresso maker?

We have the 'usual suspects' but when I want commercial coffee, I tend
to go to Aromas:

Their 'Sunrise' muffins are sort of a ginger-bread, carrot cake and
slightly fruit-cake type of muffin . . . terribly decadent. She should
bring back one for you.

If she wants something better for the room pot, there is a place called
the Koffee Klatch about a block from the county court house. She can
pickup a couple of small bags and with filters, she'll be set for
morning.

If she'd like a nice French press, Paulies' Chop House does OK. They are
a little pricy but they are a block away from the court house. Just ask
and folks will help with directions.

Local brew is "Old Towne" and not half bad but I'd recommend getting a
shot 'taster' before ordering a pint.

For a nice steak dinner, I would recommend "Logans." Does she have any
particular food preferences?

Huntsville has one pretty good version of most food styles and several
average versions.

As for the best coffee, it is my home-roasted Kona but that is not
ordinarily available outside of co-workers and home.

Thanks for the info, Bob. She does travel with coffee for the room. I
suspect she will be on the stand for only a few hours and then looking
around a bit.
