By this time you should know that anywhere I go, I try to find a good coffee shop. To me that doesn’t always necessarily mean the very best coffee, but a good combination between #InteriorGoals and delicious caffeinated beverages.
Having lived in Temecula for several years, I can tell you that the one thing that was always missing there was a good coffee shop. You know, a place with good latte art and instaworthy photos.. (*cough* not Starbucks).
Ever since I found out that Augies and A La Minute were joining up and sharing a space in the historical buildings of Vail Ranch, I could absolutely not wait. But wait I had to, as it seemed to take forever to open up! Every detail from the hand-painted signs outside to the super cute interior is just perfect.
I mean, ice cream and coffee in one place is really a genius idea. I love the fact that they borrow items from each other to add to the menu. To name one, the affogato featuring Augie’s coffee with A La Minute’s ice cream.
This salted caramel ice cream was so creamy and delicious. I have yet to try other flavors because I love this one SO DARN MUCH!
Anyways, that being said…you’ll know where to find me next time I’m in town!
Til next time…
It seems as though some of my best weekends this summer were spent in San Diego. I’m so glad I have finally been able to spend a decent amount of time there as it really has been a while since I was last able to. Well, I thought summer was ending but thankfully the sun decided that is not the case. Oh no, I definitely felt its rays this weekend!
After many months of wanting to visit Communal Coffee in San Diego, I was finally able to. If this does not ring a bell, let me just say you might easily identify it by that “Coffee & Flowers” sign in large bold font plastered along the wall outside. Yes, the perfect photo opp.
And yes, I may have sprinted to it as soon as the couple enjoying their coffee date stood up from sitting directly in front of it. But hey, I wasn’t about to come all the way here JUST for some iced chai 😉 Although that iced chai was pretty darn good. They actually also had coffee flights which were such an amazing concept! Genius, really.
Every single corner screamed CUTE! I seriously get major home inspo from places like this, and Communal Coffee did not disappoint. A combination of flowers and plants and coffee… I really have no complaints there. There was a gift and flower shop indoors that shared the space with the coffee house, and a plant shop in the backyard.
I seriously have a love for coffee shops and discovering new ones. I really am going to have to think of a good name for this hobby of mine soon. Coffee-shop-exploring just doesn’t cut it.
Finally, I was left with some wise words escorting me to my car:
I appreciate that, Communal. And yes we are on a first name basis.
Until next time…
