Best Spot for Coffee, Kombucha and Cacti

If you were to create a shop that is basically catnip to millennials and Gen-Z-ers, it would be Newport’s headquarters for Fleurish Grounds and Flow coffee. Fleurish Grounds started out as a pop-up in co-owner Christine Funke’s garage before it turned into a popular brick-and-mortar storefront in Madisonville. Funke closed that shop last year and moved over to Newport where Fleurish is offering its same patented blend of plants, pots and curated vintage clothing — with a bonus. Shoppers browsing for their next favorite snake plant can now also grab a pour-over or draft kombucha from Flow. Fleurish even has its own specialty blend of coffee from local roasters Urbana Cafe.;
