What upppp. This is the page that is straight up food galore from places that I’ve fallen in love with and can’t help returning to repeatedly. A.k.a this is the page for Melody’s coveted favorites as well as the places that are always good to try but not necessarily favorites.
June 20, 2015: The Good Earth Cafe
This cafe is charming and relaxed, and the food is solid (the French toast is melt-in-your-mouth). Plus meals come with bottomless coffee refills! But it’s nothing unique or anything–simply good old comfort fare.
June 21, 2015: The Hazel Room
June 22, 2015: Ava Roasteria
I‘m particular about my coffee, and Ava’s is all right. I’ll admit that it’s better than Starbucks, and I judged this based on Ava’s iced latte (to which I added a dash of cinnamon,the way I like it!) There’s a nice strong flavor that’s not too bitter, and the coffee shop is quiet. Perfect for cranking out blog posts. Alas, still a little pricey for the quality I’m getting.
June 25, 2015: Bowl & Berry
This healthy destination opened recently in Bethany Village, but I’ve had better at other juice bars (like Moberi). Still expensive as always. But if I’m getting a health boost and fruit, I shouldn’t complain. They serve bowls, smoothies, and juices!
June 29, 2015: Cafe Voila
This cafe is located just across the street from the SW Alder food carts–and it doesn’t look as attractive or appealing, but the quality of noms is pretty good. Folks at Cafe Voila use local, sustainable ingredients and change the menu regularly. So things are always kept interesting and you know that what you’re ingesting didn’t come from some genetically modified/polluted source.
