“There is no sincerer love than the love of food” -George Bernard Shaw
With that being said, I found a new coffee shop in La Mirada, California called “Cream & Sugar Cafe” and OMG it is adorable! Located in a small strip mall, the front doesn’t give it justice. From the outside, it doesn’t look like much.
The color of the walls are medium gray and there’s lots of artwork on the wall. A drawing of the world map, a big wooden headboard that has HELLO in silver letter and sometimes it lights up! One of my favorite little detail about this place is that on every table there is 1 mason jar that contains sugar and another mason jar that has mini coffee creamers. The menu is actually a chalkboard that has all of the options available.
The first time I came here I had got the Iced Mint Coffee. *Yes I know: iced coffee with mint?!* It’s not as sweet as you would expect, but in my opinion, sometimes too much sweet takes away from the coffee taste. This iced coffee had more of a light hint of mint. *A little about me: I love mostly everything mint!* What I also love about this place and their coffee, is that when you order for here, you get your coffee in a mason jar. They were so sweet that they gave me a sample of the iced mint coffee before I ordered to see if I would like it. The sample was in another mini mason jar!
The second time I purchased something here was the Watermelon Mojito. My favorite alcoholic beverage is a mojito so you can imagine of course I had to get the non-alcoholic version of this. I love the different layers shown in this pic! You’ve got the lemonade flavor on the bottom while the watermelon is on the top and that cute little mint sprig as the topping. It’s such a refreshing drink especially in the summer!
The last thing I ordered recently was the Roast Beef with Horseradish sandwich. It has roast beef, red onions, tomatoes, lettuce, cheese and a horseradish dressing on a baguette. I’m honestly not a big fan of horseradish but for some reason it fit perfectly in the sandwich.
