Things are getting a bit better?

It was really nice this morning. Genifer and I drove over to get Sidewinder Coffee before she left for the office and before I headed upstairs to get to work.

And this morning, Sidewinder had new cinnamon rolls and I got the last one…

It was a really good cinnamon roll. Not as good as the original cinnamon twists that Sidewinder used to have. Those were some of the best cinnamon rolls I’ve ever had. But this one was pretty darn good. It reminded me a lot of the cinnamon muffin we shared at Overeasy in Dallas. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

But maybe, just maybe, this was a little sign that things are starting to return to normal just a little bit.

We ate this.

Genifer made chocolate chip banana bread…

And we had chili mac with garlic bread for dinner…

And it was all very delicious. But the banana bread was better than the child mac.

The most important meal of the day.

I had some gluten-free toaster waffles with maple syrup for breakfast this morning…

And they were delicious. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿง‡โค๏ธ

Sunny Blu Coffeehouse.

A while back a little coffeehouse in Cincinnati’s Camp Washington neighborhood followed me on Instagram. I followed them back. And I’ve been admiring them ever since. The coffeehouse was called Sunny Blu Coffeehouse. And this morning, we finally drove around the corner to Camp Washington to see what they were all about…

Sunny Blu Coffeehouse is super cute on the inside…

Genifer ordered a cappuccino with a little caramel added to it. I pondered what I would get for literally one second before ordering the Hot Vanilla Chocolate. People love their coffee, I love hot chocolate.

Sunny Blu also had some terrific-looking sweets…

But I had to try their french toast breakfast sammich. And we got these Cold Brew Cocktails to try later…

Their french toast breakfast sammich was out-of-this-world good…

We really like Sunny Blu Coffeehouse…

And the best part is that Sunny Blu is located right on our way downtown. Camp Washington is conveniently located between Northside and Over-the-Rhine/Central Business District. It’s great to have another wonderful coffee that we can stop at on our way downtown in the morning. If we ever get to go back downtown again, that is.

I love Google Maps too…

And we love Sunny Blu. We can’t wait to come back. Very often. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ”ตโ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Oh, and the cold brew cocktails were really good too. Strong. But really tasty.

Happy National Croissant Day.

Today was National Croissant Day. I had mine with sausage, egg, and cheese…

And I got chocolate milk to go with my sammich…

Caffe Barrista on Fourth Street has amazing breakfast sammiches. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅโค๏ธ

Genifer usually drops me off at work right around 8:30 in the morning. I dropped my backpack at my desk, walked down Fourth Street to get my haircut, walked back down Fourth Street to get a breakfast sammich and got back to work before most people had even set foot in the building. It’s kind of crazy how both Genifer and I have transitioned to become morning people. And I like it.

A pretty good start to the weekend.

It’s Saturday morning so we got up early to go get more Biggby Coffee

This weekend we had a coupon for $1 off…

Genifer got a 20oz. Caramel Marvel latte and I got a 24oz. Cocoa Carmella hot chocolate with some butterscotch flavoring added to it…

Biggby’s coffee is sooo good. When we got home with our Biggby coffees, we made some delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast…

What a great way to start a weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

It’s what’s for breakfast.

We had delicious Pillsbury cinnamon rolls for breakfast this morning…

And they were really good. ๐Ÿ˜€โค๏ธ

Locoba by Platform.

We took a detour on the way to work this morning to swing by Locoba by Platformย on Main Street in OtR to try their coffee. We’ve been to Locoba before for Platform’s beers. But we’ve never tried their coffee…

My caramel latte was so good…

And that makes it even more of a bummer that their coffees only come in one size. Not big enough. Also, another bummer is that they only serve breakfast sammiches on the weekends. So yeah. Bummer.ย ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ


Apricot Coffee House.

After making a run to Trader Joe’s this morning, we got to stop at another new coffee shop. This morning’s pick was the new Apricot Coffee House in Pleasant Ridge…

Genifer had a latte. You could see the flower pattern through the lid…

And they had donuts from Starlight Doughnut Lab

I had the Choc Norris cold brew, cacao and banana smoothie with a mint chocolate donut from Starlight Doughnuts Lab

Apricot Coffee House is a great little coffee shop. We’ll definitely be back! ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฉโค๏ธ

The old switcheroo.

This morning at Grey, they replaced our normal Friday morning bagels with donuts from Daylight Donuts. Let’s see if anyone notices…

I would take donuts over bagels every day. And twice on Fridays. Just saying.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฉโค๏ธ
