I brought my computer here in hopes of getting a few things done.
It was around 30 minutes later

The owner sent a part-timer to tell us that this is not a cafe where we can sit and work
They didn’t want the other guests to come and view the cafe as a place to site for long periods of time… and that we have to leave if we finished our drink
I felt so bad for the part-timer. She was really sweet and I can see it was hard for her to tell us this.
I understand her
We just said thanks and left

HOWEVER

It was only me and my sister is this big cafe.
We were a bit upset to here that we had to leave when the cafe was empty
I recommend this place to people who just wants to grab a quick bite and leave

Anyways, I’ll continue on with the tour.

Lolli and Pops

Who can say no to sweets?

Lolli and Pops is a candy store that can also be found in other elsewhere in the States. This particular store was in Americana Way in California.

We loved the overall theme of the store.
There was a different theme for different sections.
Best of all, you can try candy from different countries.
They even have Harry Potter goodies!

Urth Caffรฉ

After several years learning how to roast and brew great coffee, they launched the nationโ€™s first exclusively organic, heirloom coffee company. They named it โ€œUrth Caffรฉโ€ because Urth is an old Welsh root spelling of Earth and Caffรฉ is Italian for coffee. They wanted a name that embodied the natural richness of the earth and delicious organic, heirloom coffee. They were also importing and hand blending fine organic teas, so โ€œExclusively Organic Coffees & Fine Teasโ€ was added to Urth Caffรฉโ€™s logo. Shallom and Jilla were indeed pioneers of the โ€œorganic food revolution.โ€ –Urth Caffe

This Urth Caffรฉ was situated in the Arts District of Downtown LA. As a farm to table cafe that is popularย for brunch, the ingredients used were very fresh and the portions were generous. We very shocked at how bright and big the tomatoes were.ย We went around 10 AM and already there was a long line of people waiting to get in.

Go around the corner and you will see the entrance.

There is a wall full of different teas one can enjoy.

The Moroccan Tea Latte paired nicely with the whole meal. It was light and refreshing so we saved it to drink at the end!

In-N-Out

innoutfrontIf you visit California, you must try In-N-Out. You can only get this on the west coast.

menuThe prices are affordable! Although the menu seems simple, they have everything one would want at a burger joint.

foodThere are different “hidden menu” items you can get. But we decided to just get the regular cheeseburgers with grilled onions and fries.

In-N-Out has this signature “spread” that’s really good, which is basically Thousand Island dressing.

I suggest trying the Animal Style fries! It’s fries with the spread, cheese, and grilled onions.

If you’re going for the shake, ask for theย Neapolitan. It’s a mixture of the chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla shakes in one.

20140728_144405.jpg

pepperIt is not on the menu, but you can always ask for whole or sliced chili peppers.

If you look under the cups, they have Bible verses! Here it says John 3:16 and Proverbs 3:5.
