If you follow my blog you know that I wore this outfit with a different sweater and sunglasses in the Lofty Leopard post where I featured Lofty Coffee. This leopard top has been on repeat and I was feeling like pink for Alfred Tea Room. Besides, this is real life where I don’t have a new outfit every single day.
I had a friend in town from Santa Cruz and she wanted to eat healthy. They have the best food from M Cafe and such a great selection of teas. She had Matcha and I had the yummiest Rose Tea Boba with Almond Milk. It is a well photographed spot you have likely seen on instagram, so we had to join in.
I discovered a new coffee place during our recent visit to San Diego. Lofty Coffee Company is amazing. I first visited their Solana Beach cafe. They roast their own coffee nearby in Encinitas as well as bake their own pasties from scratch. They have house made almond milk and hazelnut milk, which makes all the difference for me. I had an iced salted caramel latte with almond milk and I had to go back the next day for another. They also have great healthy, natural food options. We stopped by the Encinitas location on our way home (it is an easy stop from Interstate 5).
I recently discovered Aharon Coffee & Roasting Company in Beverly Hills. They make their own nut milks and syrups. I had an iced latte with almond-hazelnut milk and “nutella” syrup. It was amazing. It was right before I got sick and was home with the flu for two weeks. As soon as I was better, I headed straight to Aharon.
The shop is lovely and they roast the beans on site. My husband and I were able to talk to Aharon Vaknin, the owner, about which beans to buy for our home machine. He took the time to talk with us about what flavors we liked and how we prepared our coffee. His recommendation was perfect!
