Candle Light Bakery and Espresso Bar ~ Norwalk, California

It’s been probably at least a year since I heard about Candle Light Bakery and its coffee program, but didn’t have a chance to visit until last weekend. I didn’t know what to expect and it was a nice surprise, a great bakery that takes coffee seriously. Quite a hidden gem in the middle of […]

Cafe Dulce Pop Up Espresso Bar ~ Downtown Los Angeles

I’ve finally had the opportunity to visit Cafe Dulce Pop Up, a Pop Up Espresso Bar by Little Tokyo’s Cafe Dulce.

One Thousand Steps Beach ~ Santa Barbara, California

One thousands steps to get to the beach? No worries, nowhere near a thousand steps, more like 250 very slippery steps that lead to a beautiful, narrow sand and cobble beach just up the coast from Shoreline Park. I adore walks by the beach and I think I’ve said this before, but for me it is […]

Great vibe, humble atmosphere, awesome view of Angel’s Flight, G&B’s great coffee and tea program, and this amazing coffee shake that I […]
