Long drives, a walk on the beach. I could go for a chai tea latte right about now. As a food blogger I like to discover new places. I hardly ever go to coffee shops. While driving through old town pacific grove, a house like coffee shop caught my eye. So of course I’m going to feed my curiosity and see what’s inside.
I opened the door and teleported to Portland, Oregon. In the past days I’ve been binging on the show portlandia. There was a skit that took place in a coffee shop that closely resembled the one I was at. Wooden tables, recycling bins. But the thing that caught my eye was the bookstore right behind the shop. Genius! Maybe this isn’t the only coffee shop with a bookstore inside but it was the first time I’ve ever seen such thing.
I ordered a chai tea latte. The nice young lady recommended I try a homemade vegan chocolate cake. Of course I will! So I took a slice. Minutes later, I took my latte and cake and say down. I took a spoonful of the cake. Wow! Vegan cake!? No way! I couldn’t tell the difference. Chocolate taste was there, not only that, but the moist texture of the cake was spot on. I really have to give infinite kudos to whomever made that cake.
If you’re looking for a place to sit and unwind, read a book or even finish paperwork. This is the place to be.
