Coffee Please.

After our Saturday morning run to Trader Joe’s, we stopped for coffee in Madeira at a place called Coffee Please

Google described it as a “homey cafe & bakery serving specialty drinks, muffins & light meals in a relaxed atmosphere.” And that seems pretty accurate…

We both each had an iced latte. And they were really good. I really liked their big coffee bean roaster too. It reminded me of Sidewinder’s Roastery

I just love getting to try new coffee shops on Saturday mornings. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈ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

Premier League Mornings.

Premier League Saturday morning soccer…

There’s nothing better than Saturday morning soccer on two screens.Β πŸ˜€βš½οΈπŸ†β€οΈ

Saturday morning in Northside.

This morning we went to Blue Jay for an early lunch…

You can’t see the Blue Jay sign through the trees…

Genifer ordered a couple of Blue Jay chili cheese sammiches and fries…

Basically, chili cheese dogs without the dogs. And I ordered the Northsider Omelet…

It’s a three-egg omelet smothered in Blue Jay’s Cincinnati-style chili with onions, beans, topped with cheddar cheese and served with toast…

It’s basically a Cincinnati five-way omelet and it was so good. We love Blue Jay…

Afterwards, we stopped next door at Shake It Records to do some record shopping…

We still don’t have a record player. We hope to remedy that very soon. But in addition to all sorts of records, they also have some really great greeting cards…

It was another great Saturday morning in Northside. Taken with my Polaroid CUBE+. πŸ˜€πŸ¦β€οΈ
