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! πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸ©β€οΈ

Mad Llama Coffee.

We made an early Saturday morning run to Trader Joe’s. And that means we get to check out another new coffee shop.Β And the coffee shop we checked out this morning was Mad Llama in Madisonville…

Neat little coffee shop. We loved all the llamas and the coffees were great! πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Awakenings Coffee Roasters.

On Saturday mornings, we’ve been getting up super early and heading to Trader Joe’s to get some groceries for the week before it gets crazy over there. After we’re done at Joe’s, I thought it would be fun to try a different coffee shop in the area. This morning’s coffee shop was Awakenings Coffee Roasters in Montgomery…

She shared a cinnamon roll because… well, I love cinnamon rolls…

The coffees and the cinnamon roll were both really good…

Oh. And we shared this breakfast sammich…

It was a really good little coffee shop. We can’t wait to find more.Β πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

It was a really fun Saturday.

This morning we were out running errands and got coffees from Hyde Perk

Later, we went down to Over-the-Rhine. We stopped to admire OtR’s Ziegler Park

Then we stopped at The Pony for lunch. They had Bell’s Pineapple Jalapeno Oberon on tap. And it was sooooo good…

The Pony has some of the best chicken tenders in all of Cincinnati…

Then we walked down Main Street to finally get to check out the relatively new Pins Mechanical Company just down from The Pony…

Pins has Duck Pin Bowling…

We didn’t try any bowling. We’ll have to save that fun for another time. And upon the second floor of Pins…

Pins has a whole bunch of pinball machines…

Upon the third floor, they have an awesome patio with a bocce ball court and giant Jenga. But that is another story for another time. On the way home, we stopped at Second Place to watch the end of the Champions League Final…

It was another pretty fun Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸ΄πŸŽ³β€οΈ
