Sisterhood: Soul Therapy — Inspired Life

Tears of joy. Smiles a plenty. Hearts wide open. All found in the uninhibited exchange between sisters. I’ve heard it said, “I don’t ‘do’ women.” What that screams is, I’ve been hurt, I’ve been wounded, I am afraid. Women are wired to be in relationship with one another. There…

House Blend Cafe~Ocoee Florida 

This morning, I had a lovely Toffee Latte at the House Blend Cafe. Very good service. They serve breakfast and lunch food.  The menu of coffee and tea is pretty extensive. The Mocha Mint Latte would be a good choice for my husband. 

Visiting Ocoee? Check them out. I enjoyed my Latte very much:)

Latte Love,

Vigilante again and again~Hyattsville MD

Mahalo!
Well, by now you must think I live here! Lol! I am here about twice a week though. Today, I couldn’t pass up the chance to tell you about this superb Acai Bowl. The Mahalo Bowl has Banana, Pineapple, Sweetsations Granola and Bee Pollen. Yummy! Anna made it for me and she is really cool too. It is always clear to me that Anna and the rest of the staff at Vigilante just plain love what they do!

They will be celebrating their 2 year anniversary in a few weeks. Make a special trip here. You will be happy you did!

Java Love,

The Drunken Monkey~Orlando Florida

 

The Drunken Monkey is located in the “Milk District” on Bumby Avenue in Orlando Florida. It has to be one of the most unique coffee houses I have visited.  Some people describe it as hipster but I call it “uniquely eclectic.” You will find local art and a variety of comfortable places to sit but no one piece of furniture matches! LOL! They also have a drive thru, which is pretty cool too.

Always a plus, the coffee is roasted in house and they only serve fair-trade, organic or rain forest alliance beans. In addition to coffee, The Drunken Monkey serves tea, smoothies, iced and frozen drinks. They also offer an assorted variety of vegetarian sandwiches, soups, quiches and pastries. I enjoyed the Iced Mocha and my husband had the Iced Caramel Latte. Both were really good. We also had the breakfast burritos, Anzac Cookie (banana, peanut butter and chocolate), snicker doodle and chocolate chip cookies.  The Anzac was by far a favorite. Delish!!! The staff and baristas were very professional and accommodating.

If you are a coffee connoisseur and find yourself in Orlando Florida’s Milk District, give them a visit. You will be pleasantly surprised and happy you did!

 

Yours in Coffee,

Foxy Loxy Cafe~ Savannah, GA

Located in the Victorian District this cafe is where quirky and caffeine marry. Oh what a beautiful relationship they have too! Serving amazing coffee from PERC, a local roaster, fresh house made baked goods and yes…Tex-Mex cuisine. We enjoyed our Cold Brew and Iced Mexican Mochas. The Mexican Mochas are infused with dark chocolate and habenero! The rich chocolate and warming kick makes this drink extra special. My husband really enjoyed the Foxy Scramble. Our girls had the Sausage Kolache and the Cream Cheese Kolaches along with bacon and hash browns. They were all delish! I  know because I am the official taste tester:)

The Foxy Loxy staff was very friendly. Atmosphere had a very hipster-artsy feel and lots of seating. If I lived in Savanah this would be a regular stop for me. Check them out ya’ll!
