I know, I know! As my husband lovingly said, "It looks like Etsy and Pinterest had a party and threw-up on each other." I actually cam here this past Saturday to spend some time with a long time friend. We've had multiple life changes that led to the distance, but I knew she loved this coffee house and I had never been. So, it was a date.
The sun-bleached wonder above is the pastry/sandwich mecca. I brought the kids and husband, because I'm a terrible friend and probably slightly co-dependent. This post is still about food, right? Anyway, my friend showed. She was beautiful, and draped in LuLaRoe. She confessed to only 32 pieces of LuLaRoe. I'll admit to 12. I have hamburger leggings. Photo shoot to follow.
My kids ordered a Carmel Latte, and a Lavender Lemonade. They loved both. No pics, deal, go there IRL.
While I listened to my friend's work and home-life stories I ate a pretty tasty grilled burrito. The Hubs got a breakfast burrito that he described as, "a wet, green tortilla, filled with plain white rice, and unseasoned microwaved eggs." Not the best review. That said, The Living Room is a supporting non-profit, to a local church.
Please set my husband's comment aside. My family is rude, crude, inappropriate, and loving beyond compare. We didn't like the food. The coffee is Stumptown, which is amazing. The staff are all volunteers. The coffee shop benefits the Hillside Church.
This magic gem hosts a music night every 4th Friday. My little dude plays the drums. It's cozy, volunteers run it, and a small business supports. Despite my husband's breakfast, I'll be back.
I can count on one hand the foods I dislike, and I'll typically even eat those. Typically frugal, but I'll pay top dollar for an amazing/unique dining experience. Never passed up a free meal, which has led me to become the #36 ranked eater in Major League Eating. July 4th, 2020 will be my third time competing in the Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest at Coney Island. I've been on ESPN. That's right people, I'm an athlete.
