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

 

Saturday morning Biggby Coffee.

This morning we went over to Biggby Coffee again in Madisonville…

We love weekend coffee runs to Biggby Coffee! πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Sunday morning with Biggby Coffee.

When we were up in Michigan last Christmas, we got to tryΒ Biggby CoffeeΒ on our last day as we were getting on the road to head back to Cincinnati. And Biggby’s coffee drinks were really good. Genifer had their Caramel Marvel and I had their Butter Bear. I looooved the Butter Bear. It was a latte with caramel and butterscotch. I was pretty sure I found my new favorite coffee drink of all time because it combined two of my favorite things… butterscotch and bears. Biggby was a great place but we thought we’d wouldn’t bet their coffee again until we went back up north.

Then we noticed that there are a handful of Biggby Coffees scattered around the greater Cincinnati area. Unfortunately, none of those locations were really all that close to us, northern Kentucky or all the way out in Loveland. Until… a brand new Biggby Coffee just opened in Madisonville. And today, we check out the new Biggby and get some delicious Biggby coffee…

Biggby Coffee is delicious. We repeated the same order as we had up in Michigan, plus a cinnamon roll. And it was every bit as terrific as we remembered. We’re glad you’re just around the corner from us now Biggby! We will be back often!Β πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸ»β€οΈ

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
