Great Coffee, Good Day

26 Mar

On the Porch

Our time in Florida is almost over. With our cameras we see the daffodils blooming at our mountain home and soon the peonies will bloom. We missed the peony bloom last year due to Covid and I am anxious to see them. This is a picture from 2018

Yesterday was my daughter’s day off work and we decided to combine running errands with lunch. A new coffee house opened a year ago and I had been wanting to try it but due to Covid it was closed for inside service most of the year. One of the errands was to pick up a prescription from a pharmacy we don’t generally use, but they had the cheapest price and guess what? It was in the same shopping area as the restaurant.

As soon as we entered the restaurant, RearView Coffee I felt that this was going to be a good experience. It just had that “feel’. We told them it was our first visit and they were helpful with our order. My hairstylist had recommended the chicken salad which comes with a croissant. We ordered coffee asked for the salad without bread and expected a scoop of it on a plate. When they brought it to us, they had wrapped it in a large lettuce leaf and topped it with a tomato slice. We still needed to use a knife and fork to eat it but appreciated the presentation. They also brought our coffee….

Ah, the coffee. We have a local bean roaster in town and the restaurant collaborated with the roasters to create a signature blend. It was amazing. All coffee should be that good. I picked up the register receipt to see how much this divine brew was costing me. To my surprise and delight, it was priced the same as I would have paid at any chain restaurant.

The restaurant is family owned and everything they serve is made fresh. I’m looking forward to trying more of their food next winter. Before leaving the shopping strip my daughter dropped off some books to share at a Little Library Box.

On our drive home I mentioned I would have liked to have visited a local shop downtown that has a large stock of Paparazzi Jewelry. She said we can do that. And so we did.

I’m not a fine jewelry kind of lady but I do enjoy tossing on a necklace when I am wearing a pretty shirt. Paparazzi costs only $5.00 but looks more expensive. Perfect for me. These pictures are from the Paparazzi website and chosen at random. I tend to favor long pieces but they also have lovely short ones.

We were almost home when I saw the sign for an estate resale store we had been wanting to explore. So we went exploring. The store was having a 70% off sale on dishes. Dishes are my weakness. Before I got carried away I remembered that I had spent almost all of my cash on the jewelry. I did leave the store with an adorable cut glass mini cream pitcher and a sweet miniature jug in blue and white. It will make a perfect vase for small blooms and wildflowers and I spent less than $2.00.

We had fun but it was good to get home and take a rest. I spent the time proof reading my daughter’s soon (hopefully) to be released book, Legacy.
