I have a terrible schedule this term. My first class starts at 12 pm and ends at 3 pm. It's too early for lunch, and I don't have time to go to a proper restaurant (such is the sad life of a commuter.) So I have to resort to eating at 3:30 in the afternoon - which is pretty awkward.
But in the mornings I usually grab a muffin or a small snack at a coffee shop before heading to class - but being the indecisive person that I am - my "quick" breakfast usually lasts for 20 or so mins *fail* and I end up having to sprint to class ;D
The other day I spotted Culprit Coffee and I knew I had to try it out! I mean - how cute is this place?! Their mascot is a RACOON. And I have this undying love for racoons (despite how vicious they are) ;)
And that YELLOW!! Ugh - I just can't get over how cute this place is!! :D
Oh - and did I mention that all their pastries are GLUTEN FREE!!?? HOLLA!!
If it wasn't for their brightly painted wall, I would have never have known this place exists!! I was walking along West 4th, and I saw their yellow wall across the street! Intrigued, I crossed the street to check it out ~ and turns out it was a coffee shop!! Bingo!! I love it when I find hidden gems like this ;D I have a feeling they won't be "hidden" for long!!
Ohh I like their tables ~
Vegan Banana Chocolate Muffin w/ Rosemary
This was SO moist. Ahh, who knew vegan muffins could taste so moist? This gives Whole Food's vegan muffins a run for their money!! The chocolate flavour was really strong, a bit bitter, and not sweet!! The rosemary was the cherry on top, it made the entire thing super fragrant!! There was bits of seeds in it too, so I didn't feel guilty eating it :D
Maccha Latte w/ Cucumber & Coconut Milk!
(That's how they have it spelled on the menu)
Noo I ruined the design!! :(
This was fabulous!! Really different from your typical matcha latte!! The matcha flavour is really strong, but it also tastes like cucumber!! Not too sweet and the coconut milk adds a little something something. The drink wasn't very foamy and it was just the right consistency!! Great paired with my muffin! :D
