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. πŸ˜€πŸŒžπŸ”΅β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

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

It was a great Saturday.

This morning started with some coffees from Biggby Coffee

YUM! Biggby has terrific hot chocolate. I love mine with some butterscotch added to it.

After we had our drinks in hand, we stopped at JackRabbit in Obryanville

At last year’s Higher Gravity Spring Grove Beer Gallop, Genifer won a $125Β  gift certificate towards a brand new running shoes from JackRabbit. And with this year’s Spring Grove Beer Gallop right around the corner, Genifer thought she’d better get some new running shoes…

Genifer got these Brooks running shoes…

These terrific running shoes only cost her $25. And that’s pretty awesome.

Later, we ran out to get lunch at Freddy’s Steakburgers

Ohmigosh. I love Freddy’s Steakburgers….

I think I’ve finally zeroed in on my go-to Freddy’s order. I think it’s going to be the original double. This is the original double with bacon…

But next time and into the future, my order will be just the original double with fries…

I used to get the triple steakburger. Sometimes I could do it. But sometimes, it was a real struggle and it was too much. Freddy’s also has a patty melt that is really good. But it’s not like a traditional patty melt. But it’s still really good.

On our way home for Freddy’s, we stopped in College Hill at Brink Brewing. Brink is one of my favorite Cincinnati breweries…

They have such great beers. Our big beer was a King Cake beer. It was awesome. Brink always has something really interesting on tap.

And that was pretty much our Saturday. We were pretty happy that we actually got out and did something on a Saturday…

And it was a great Saturday.

Weekend morning coffee.

It’s Saturday morning and we’re contractually obligated to head over Madisonville to get our weekend morning coffee from Biggby

Especially since Biggby had a BOGO coupon on their Instagram

Wouldn’t that be awesome if we really were under contract to drink Biggby hot chocolate and post photos about it every weekend? It would be terrific. But we kind of do that every weekend anyway.

We just love our weekend morning beverages from Biggby. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Lazy Saturday mornings are the best.

But Oscar just wanted to go on a walk…

Good morning from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

Our Saturday.

This morning we got up early and went to Trader Joe’s and then to Kroger for groceries. Afterward, we stopped at Biggby Coffee for our weekend morning drinks…

It was kind of a sports Saturday. We watched Leicester draw with Chelsea, Xavier beat #10 Seton Hall, the second half of Wolves super boring draw with United, Michigan beat #25 Rutgers. And later, #23 Wichita State lost to Tulsa. The two underdogs we were cheering for won but the favorited Shockers lost and both of our soccer teams drew.

We finished watching 11.22.63 on Hulu. It was really good. We wished it would have kept going for more episodes. We started watching a new series on Netflix. This one isΒ  called The Stranger. It seems like another pretty good one. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβš½οΈπŸ€πŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Another rainy Saturday.

This morning we woke up early again to head over to Trader Joe’s before it got too crazy busy on Saturday. The later it gets, the busier it gets. We usually try to get to Trader Joe’s as close to 8am when it open as we can. This morning was our best time
so far. We pulled into their parking lot at 8:02am…

I just thought that little berry bunny was pretty cute. We didn’t get any frozen chocolate cover strawberry pieces though. I wonder if they would be good?

After we were done getting groceries at TJ’s, we headed over to get our Saturday morning coffee at Biggby

Biggby is our reward for getting up and getting groceries out of the way. We both got hot chocolates this morning. Biggby had more student artwork on display on their walls. I really liked the hills with the watercolor skies…

The owl and the elephant were really great too…

And if we had a daughter and named her Niala…

She would be Niala Fiala. Maybe Niala could be a middle name.

Later, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for another lunch with our gift cards we got for Christmas…

Taft’s had a new Hazelnut Latte Coffee Milk Stout on tap…

And it was really delicious. We watched the Michigan-Illinois game on our little tablet. We shared a small pizza with pepperoni, sausage and banana peppers…

We also shared some of Taft’s chicken wings…

We had six buffalo wings and six Cherrywood BBQ wings…

I think I really like the Cherrywood BBQ the best. But they’re both really good. And even though, Michigan lost. Again. It was a great lunch. We just love Taft’s pizza and wings.

Later, we started watching a series called 11.22.63 on Hulu. It’s pretty good so far. And even though it was another rainy day, it was another pretty good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ¨οΈβ€οΈ

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. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

A rainy Cincinnati Saturday.

It was really warm this morning with temperatures hovering in the mid-60s. But it was supposed to rain all day. And it pretty much did.

Before it started raining this morning we got up and ran over to Biggby for weekend morning coffee

We saw on Biggby’s Instagram that they had a BOGO offer just for today…

My new favorite go-to drink is Biggy’s Cocoa Caramella hot chocolate with a little bit of butterscotch added to it. It’s a great drink. And I really prefer hot chocolate to coffee. The caffeine makes me feel too jittery.

We watched some of the soccer this morning. My favorite club, Arsenal drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace and my other favorite club, Leicester City lost to Southampton 2-1. The last time Leicester and Southampton played, Leicester thumped the Saints 9-0.

We hung out upstairs and I worked on some work stuff until the dogs let us know they wanted to go on another dog walk…

Later when it was time for the other football, we took the Taft’s gift cards we received for Christmas around the corner to the Brewpourium for some pizza and wings. Taft’s had a peanut butter version of their Maverick chocolate porter on tap…

And it was really terrific. We usually get Taft’s Cherrywood BBQ wings but tonight we tried their buffalo wings. And they really good too. Pretty spicy but really good. So good, in fact, we had already eaten half of the wings before I remembered to take a photo…

And we shared a small pizza with pepperoni, sausage and banana peppers…

Taft’s pizzas are so good! When we were leaving, the Brewopurium was getting crazy…

Apparently, there was going to be a comedy show in the back of the Brewpourium. When we got home, we walked the dogs around the block again in the rain…

We watched a pretty dumb movie on Prime Video and then fell asleep while we watched the rest of the other football playoff game. It was a pretty good Saturday. It would have better if I didn’t have to work on a bunch of work stuff. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸΎπŸ•πŸ”πŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

College Hill Coffee Company.

This morning we set out to run some Saturday morning errands but first we stopped for coffee up in College Hill at College Hill Coffee Company

Genifer ordered a peppermint mocha and I got myself a hot chocolate with chocolate chip banana bread…

Our drinks were really good. There’s also all sorts of gift items and home goods and odds and ends in CHCC like these huge gourmet rice crispy treats…

And this adorable dinosaur hide & hunt puzzle dog toy…

And their menu looked really good too. We’ll have to come back up to College Hill Coffee Company for breakfast sometime very soon. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

We run on Dunkin.

We got up this morning to run some errands, and along the way we stopped to get some Dunkin in Finneytown…

I really like Dunkin’s Dunkaccino. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸ©β€οΈ
