You are reading mmm-yoso!!!, which is a blog about food and sometimes beverages. Today's short post is written by Cathy, because ed(from Yuma) and Kirk apparently don't have much to say. Today.
Hi. The other Saturday, after after a breakfast at Opera Patisserie, I decided to drive about aimlessly, as I tend to do (The Mister could tell you some stories) and drove West, under the I-5 and then North on Scranton Road, parallel to the freeway, until I got to the intersection of the I-5 and I-805.
Then I saw a small strip mall, just behind the Coaster stop. I recall someone mentioning this great coffee shop. This rather obscure signage...
Ali Baba's Cave looks interesting, was not yet open. The simple words "Coffee Shop". We had just had a coffee with our breakfast, but that really never stops me. I like good coffee.
Zumbar. Humble. Unassuming. The sign with the name is inside. Three tables and a bar with two stools inside, three tables out front. That is the whole menu. They roast their own coffee and sell it here. (the majority of the space in back is taken up by the roasters) Yes. The entire menu. They make coffee the right way. Coffee.
They make it pretty. ( I ordered a macchiato and The Mister got an Americano). We got it to go, but you can see they have plenty of "for here' cups.
The add-ins area is small. Really, you don't need to add anything. This place has *really* good coffee. Stop in. They have a few pastries available. It is wonderful.
