|It was quite cute inside, not to mention spacious.|
|The refrigerated beverage section was promising.|
|Katie thought of the Martinelli's Apple Juice jars as a treat, and I tried this Blood Orange Honeydrop business. As per usual, mine was more interesting but didn't taste that great.|
|They steam the vanilla on the macchiato, which makes it nicer than places that don't.|
|Espresso - 6/10 (Starbucks is a 5/10, for reference). |
|I had the "Sausage Apple Bites - $4.50: 3 hearty sausage, celery, apple & cheese meatballs. Side of apple slices"|
They were pretty darn good! I prefer some eggs with my sausage, but I guess apples are okay.
|These apples were much more fun that the ones next to my sausages.|
|I was unable to resist buying this chocolate sea salt truffle cookie for later.|
As many waitresses do, ours warned us about the sea salt, since non-foodies can get turned off by it, but it actually hardly tasted of salt anyway. It did, however, taste amazing, and it was so soft. So soft and dense, which is apparently their style of baked good, which I support wholeheartedly. We ate it many hours later and it was still soft, so you know it's the good stuff (i.e. less stupid flour, undercook, a crap load of butter, more egg yolks).
They have a big water cooler and large, reusable cups out for your hydration needs. It's so much better than these places that give you those annoying tiny plastic cups.
They also have a pretty fun assortment of lunches, including daily soups, pizzas on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, sandwiches, wraps, and salads.
They had a bad ass living room:
|Before I took this picture, two women had been chatting quietly in this loungey room.|
|On the shelf there were mostly children's books and the Wicked series.|
Check out the restroom:
|"Ohhhh. Lucie Monroe's! Like I love Lucie and Marilyn Monroe. Whoops." Katie made fun of my pronunciation error.|
|What were we supposed to do, not get inappropriate with the irresistible little tongue of this scarecrowish thing just hanging out there outside this coffee shop in this town called Christiansburg?|
