This evening, we stopped by Cocoa Cinnamon for coffee.
Despite being the sort of place that’s almost too hip for mere mortals, I highly recommend it — the coffee is excellent and the staff is friendly and helpful (even when dealing with rubes like me)*
We ordered two of their signature espresso drinks, an Aleppo Souk (w/spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, and *I think* cumin) for me, a Tower of Babel (w/honey and date sugar) for My Fella.
Despite its ultra-foodiness, it’s cheaper than Starbucks. Nicer atmosphere, too. I’d have sat and stayed if we’d had time to linger.
Plus, this sign made my evening:
Sadly, it’s a bit out of the way for daily consumption — I don’t often get over to W. Geer — but I’ll certainly take guests here, if and when they visit.
