Let The Challenge BEGIN !

Hi guys! Here's your first prompt :D 

The boy and I decided to finally visit that cute little coffee shop down the street from our house and it was AWESOME! It's called Memphis Brew and as their sign says, they serve coffee, pastries, and they've got free wifi too! 

When we walked in were greeted by Diana, the sweetest barista EVER and she was so sincerely friendly, warm, and generous. She gave us a free, homemade sausage cheddar biscuit with our order and it was sooooo good! The thing I liked most about this place is that it was very laid back...it has that down home feel to it. I felt really comfortable like I was in my own kitchen lol. The service was exceptional, the coffee and food is delish and the price is just right! This is the kind of place I could be a regular at ;) My favorite thing about Memphis Brew is that they have a notebook that everyone can write whatever they want in...I thought that was the coolest thing! We didn't get to do it this time, but we will be back and I plan on leaving my mark ;)  


Now it's YOUR turn!!! and remember, the coffee shop must be LOCAL, no chains! ;) It's not mandatory, but if you want to link your post here in a comment, feel free!

Have FUN!!

Oh, my! Do you know a coffee store that's not a chain in California? I keep telling David, mi fiancé, that I can't believe it's so hard to find a cute little coffee store or restaurant that doesn't belong to a chain! Also, I love drinking coffee in a real cup/mug, not a paper one!

Maybe this is one of the things I'm going to miss the most about Buenos Aires when I move to California. I love how every little store, café is unique and tells its own story.

Nice pics!

The local coffee shop you went to sounds great!
I've got the perfect two little local coffee shops in mind. Can I do both? xD

I *LOVE* local coffee shops... I don't have a picture, unfortunately (but I can get one over the 4th of July week)... but there is one up in Traverse City, Michigan that is called Crow About It ... and they make coffee and cakes... and with every coffee you buy (no matter what kind) you get a DELICIOUS little slice of cake that comes perched on top of your coffee cup.
It's AMAZING!!!

What a fun and great idea! There's a local coffee shop I've been dying to check out and just haven't gotten around to doing yet. Now I must, and will.

This is just like high school with me turning in my assignment right before it's due! I wrote about THE EDGE. It was fabulous.

I had written about it here. I went to a little place called Dante's Cafe.
