Peet’s Coffee – Manhattan Beach

When ever I visit LA I can’t leave without grabbing a hot cup of coffee and taking a stroll on the beach be. This morning I headed over to Manhattan Beach one of my favorite beaches in LA. The early morning strolls are the best –Crisp Air, Friendly Faces, Beautiful View and of course a tasty hot cup of coffee. Peet’s Coffee and Tea serves up a really nice Café Au Lait….

Peet’s Coffee & Tea is about three blocks from the Manhattan Beach Pier. They offer a full range of coffee drinks, as well as teas, pastries and coffee accessories. There’s plenty of seating both indoor and out…. I have never taking a seat for obvious reasons… Grab my coffee and or treat and head to the beach to people watch and enjoy the view. Peet’s coffee definitely worth giving them a trip and a sip while in LA!

Well-Bred

While in Asheville, NC I was having one of my moments.. Thoughts of Tiramisu and coffee!!!!! Relying on  “Motion X GPS” which thankfully hasn’t failed me yet -I was directed to a quant little bakery with a sign in the window “Well-Bred” (it less than 10 minutes from Asheville in Weaverville).

I swear when I walked in the only thing I smelled was tiramisu… and there it was sitting all pretty right before my eyes…

I ordered a nice BIG piece and a cup of Café Au Lait. A taste of love!

Well-Bred had me at hello… That tiramisu was so divine, creamy and yummilicious!! The sad thing about the journey I only purchased one piece and didn’t taste it until I was miles away -I had taste dummies in the vehicle with me that obviously had to try some. Leaving me wanting more..

Next time I’m headed back to NC I know to order more –enough to share and enough to keep for myself.
