Hello and welcome to mmm-yoso!!! This food centric blog has posts relating to the how and/or why of an eventual food experience. Kirk is busy having and documenting His experiences, Ed(from Yuma) is busy planning His experiences and Cathy's had another experience and is sharing today.
Yes, The Mister and I drove to the Ocean again, this time on an overcast day.
We drove a bit South, making our first stop at the Sunset Cliffs Natural Park.
We then drove North a bit, stopping at the Ocean Beach Pier, again.
Walking up Newport Street on the same block as the beach, this bright inset storefront stood out.
We walked inside, passing plants for sale, stacks of used newspapers and books, parked bicycles, an eclectic seating area and many locals, including some fresh from the ocean surfers.
Near the center of the space (the covered area) was the area to order.
We then found an empty table near the back. More plants for sale. Good espresso.
Soon, our order of a "Belgium Bites" ($6)-freshly baked waffle, topped with sliced banana and accompanied by peanut butter and honey- was brought over to the table. This was a nice combination of flavors, just enough to share and hit the spot.
The fireplace is going when the evenings are cool.
You can see the main counter is a former Coffee Cart. Total cost for a regular coffee, double shot of espresso and the waffle was < $10.
A nice, friendly, neighborhood coffee and snack place with free wifi and great coffee.
