Alcove Coffee Shop

Image
So I have been traveling around Georgia drinking my way in coffee. My honey and I went to Alcove Coffee in Lilburn Georgia. We enjoyed a shared pot of Moroccan mint tea. They make the tea up in pots and we had blueberry muffins as well. This place is situated right on a lake and the views are amazing. If you are lucky you see a turtle sunning himself. If you want anything iced they can do it, if you want lovely light, they have it, this place is so peaceful and truly a gem in Georgia.






It is so serene looking out the large windows watching the lake.The view from this coffee house can not be beat!












The decor is eclectic and it mixes so well. There are seats, stools, chairs, tables, benches, you name it they have it. It lends a homey feel to it and


The entrance is along the trees and has a view of the lake from all around it. The peacefulness of this place is amazing as it is right off a busy road, but all the trees help keep the noise away.











I have been here before and their coffee is am…

Traveling with Coffee II

This past weekend was a whirlwind of sweets, coffee, and a short family visit. I traveled to Roswell Georgia where I go to visit the very hip young coffee house that has their heads on right. Their motto is Drink Coffee, Do Good! And they stand by it. They support the coffee farmers and villages they get their coffee from. They support the schools, the children, the entire village and they do good! They are the Land of Thousand Hills . Go check this place out!







This coffee house is literally a house. Their rooms are filled with tables and baskets and the combination of the wood, the light, and the smells allow all who enter to feel at home. I got an iced coffee because hello Georgia is hot and I added some half and half and no sugar needed. It was sweet and cold and the coffee was rich and so perfect. A cup hit the spot topped off with a lemon blueberry scone.


I walked around the little house saying hello to other people and everyone was so friendly. The crowd is a young group, but th…

Traveling with Coffee

So with the end of my first story about Melanie, I have started traveling through this great state called Georgia. I have been all over it, but this summer I am traveling by coffee. Let me explain. Due to a work injury I cannot do my normal work, so I am in an office for the time being, which means I have off every weekend. I thought what a great way to travel, I will go visit coffee houses in Georgia. I like coffee, but I love the third space. A space where people come together as a community and feel safe. People talk to people at other tables, they talk to people who they normally would consider outside their comfort zone. This Saturday 6-9-18 I started my summer of coffee travel with a trip to a coffee house I had been to before and am in love with: Senoia Coffee & Cafe. It is situated in Senoia Georgia and is a charming coffee place, but it also has a banging good menu. Everything is made to order so you relax, talk to people, and gently wait for your f…
