It’s been a perfect Sunday so far!
Started off with a long walk to Abbot Kinney and back, which took about 2 hours. Our destination:
Intelligentsia, which makes the best coffee ever. Although I gave up caffeine almost 2 years ago, I remember their brews being mind-blowing, and Abe (who DOES have a daily cup of joe) still raves about this place. I’d never been to the Venice location before so I offered to go in and place his order to check it out.
…and also out front:
The whole Intelligentsia experience can seem a bit pretentious…
…the baristas (who all look like designers on Project Runway) are all nice, though, and they share their extensive coffee knowledge in a helpful – not snooty – manner. I got Abe his usual iced coffee, plus a Banana Wheatgerm Muffin (made by Cake Monkey) to go.
On the walk back we saw some interesting autos…
Including one with free lollipops!!!
It was noon when we finally broke into this bad boy.
I had my half crumbled on some lowfat Greek Yogurt, sweetened with a packet of NuStevia
Plus a few organic raisins
This bowl was awesome! Mostly thanks to that muffin, which was perfection.
The day continues with reading on the beach and a trip to Trader Joe’s! What could be better?
Hope you’re having an amazing Sunday too, wherever you are!
