in the city : star lounge coffee







This is our usual Wednesday- a trip north to the city, late breakfast with pancakes and eggs to share, new cafes, time spent walking outside, no concrete plans at all. Today I was in search for the best coffee in the city and was smitten with our choice of Star Lounge Coffee Bar.  I would have never been able to find this hidden gem without the help of my friend Jenny, so here most sincerely, is my thank you.

I felt it necessary to add Sofia didn't actually get a true taste of my latte, just a bit of the chocolatey foamed milk on top.  Such a curious little one we have...

  4. My little one does the same thing! I usually scoop it off for him with a spoon. Today, though, was too hot for one of those. A big iced coffee for my husband and I this afternoon...

    1. Iced does sound delicious... we had a very mild day today, thinking I may have to whip up a batch at home this weekend.

  5. I'm glad you and your cute little family were able to make it there! A friend told me it was worth the trip and I was so happy to sit there and work in the sunny window toward the back for 4 hours the other day. This place made me happy and calm. Cheers! :D

    1. Thank you so much, the light ended up being perfect as we stopped in right as the sun was beginning to go down. Plus, that red wall definitely 'popped!' Hope you've had a great week!

  12. Oooh their menu sounds sooo good. A Mayan mocha with cinnamon and cayenne? YUM. I've stopped drinking coffee so I don't have to worry about my caffeine intake, but it has had some terrible side effects. Including jealousy :)

    1. You are too good... My midwife okayed two cups a day, but I usually stick to just one. Even that is hard for me, surprisingly! ;)
