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 Decor:

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 Food/Drinks:

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.

Coffee Code Review

Hi loves!

I hope you all are enjoying November! Is it just me or are the days going by so quickly?

I wanted to start doing reviews on restaurants and places I indeed believe people should know about! I recently went to a coffee shop called Coffee Code located in Buena Park, CA (across from Knotts Berry Farm)  and this definitely is different type of cafe. It’s not what I expected at all. Once I walked in, I was overwhelmed by the scent. It smelled of sweets and coffee. Such a daring mix!

THE INFO:

Name: Coffee Code

Address: 7855 La Palma Ave, Suite 6, Buena Park, CA 90620

Hours: Monday-Saturday 11am-11pm

Sunday-11am-10pm

THE DECOR:

From the outside, it doesn’t look like much but when you walk in, the walls are red with quotes and drawings. There’s one awesome quote that says:

Sweet and hot coffee makes me sing,

A piece of cake makes me laugh,

Chocolate covered donuts makes us happy

Come and share with me.

There’s also a TV in the corner (which I never noticed playing), you can’t help notice the LOVE shown under it. It’s so romantic! ❤ This is definitely a great place for a first date.

I do love how in the corner there is a table that has more sugar, creamer and napkins in case you do need it. But when I first noticed the table, I saw the two plaques that had coffee quotes on them! One read: “Coffee made me do it” and the other one read: “Dear Coffee, I love you. That is all.”

Of course the lights!

The COFFEE:

I’ve came here already twice in one week, that’s how much I love the coffee and the art!

First time I came here my friend had ordered the peppermint white mocha and I had ordered the caramel latte. I definitely am in love with the latte art. It’s such a cool creative concept and it is pretty cool to see the baristas doing it. The coffee itself is awesome, a tad bit strong but pretty tasty.

THE MENU:

Just like any other coffee shop, there’s much more than coffee. They have their famous french toast and waffles that can feed 2 or 3 people! They also have iced coffees, frappes, smoothies, and teas.

PRICE RANGE:

Both times I came here, I ordered 2 drinks and paid about $10 total. I hoenstly think this is more of a splurge 🙂 I will have to try the desserts next time though.
