Rubies and Diamonds recently opened at Columbia Square in Hollywood. Melanie Maras said I should check it out, so I did!
The cafe was actually bustling when we showed up on a Saturday afternoon; we managed to snap photos of all the empty corners.
A sampling of all of their unique Nitro Chilled Beverages – everything from coffee (regular + decaf) to ginger ale and turmeric tea. All were refreshing from the little bubbles – kinda like Kombucha, with a richness reminiscent of Guinness Beer.
I ordered the Creamy Matcha, slightly sweet from raw cane sugar. (The same one we featured in our latest BuzzFeed Video.)
Paired with a matching Green Tea Matcha Scone, studded with White Chocolate Chips.
Rubies + Diamonds also has Rotis inspired by the countries where they source the coffee beans/tea leaves. I’ll be back for lunch during the week to check those out sometime.
