One of my favourite things to do is to try different coffee and bake shops. This is because of a couple of reasons:
- I love coffee.
- I love pastries and baked goods.
- The atmosphere - every single coffee and bake shop I've been to have a wonderful and inviting atmosphere.
- It's fun trying something new - new flavours, new menu items.
- I like spending money at a local, independent business than the 'big guy' coffee shops.
There are a handful of places that I've visited here that I really, really like. And even though Adam isn't big on coffee, I can usually drag him to one of the local coffee shops with the promise of some sort of sweet treat.
With the cooler weather, I'm finding myself trying to fit in all the coffee shop dates with both Adam and friends. Typically I head out bundled up in Winter clothing and lots of layers but in my ideal world, I'd be dressing in a similar outfit to this (I also really, really need that coffee & donuts tee!):
Do you have a favourite local coffee place? I'm thankful that even though this city is smaller than I'm used to, there is no shortage of good coffee and tasty pastries and baked goods.
