Happy (Surrogate) Valentine’s Day

Abe had to go back to work, so I spent the morning with my Surrogate Valentine!

Met Goh at Balconi Coffee Company, which is in a small shopping center on Olympic and Sawtelle

They make their coffee in a siphon (just like “Gale” in “Breaking Bad!“)

There’s no WiFi at this cozy cafe…

…an intentional choice – so you can focus on the java

I ordered a decaf latte…

…non-dairy designs don’t turn out as pretty:

I rarely drink coffee, but when I do, I prefer it with warm soy. It’s slightly sweet, and creamier than nonfat (regular milk/cream is a bit too rich for me).

DELICIOUS. Also yummy – their Blueberry Coffee Cake:

(They offer other baked goods too)

Goh had a few bites, but I devoured the bulk of this flour baby…

…an inside joke, for those of you who have seen our film. We start promoting the sequel very soon!

    Every time I make it back to your blog, it inspires, refreshes, and makes me SMILE! Thanks!! And I LOVE the no wi-fi deal. Earlier this week I found myself so buried in my phone I almost missed seeing a random Korean guy bust a move on my ride home from work on the train in Seoul. It is really nice to disconnect sometimes!
