The bittersweet concept is a combination of all in life that is sweet and bitter, whether it is a bittersweet romance novel, a caramel coffee frappe, or a piece of dark chocolate.  

Founded in 2015 in the City of Americus, Georgia, by Chuck Faaborg and Elena Albamonte,  bittersweet offers books, including comics and graphic novels, coffee, and chocolate, in a beautiful, comfortable atmosphere. 

Located in the newly renovated former Glover Opera House in Americus's historic district, bittersweet is the new Americus destination.
