Happy New Year! I wish you a wonderful year of joy, happiness, health and prosperity!
One of my new year resolutions is to try new things and go to different places. We moved to Ventura 4 month ago and I have seen quite a bit so far. Now I am ready to explore more and I want to share with you places and things I like and recommend.
Where do you go to get your coffee? I know Starbucks or The Coffee Bean And Tea Leaf is very popular and probably the first choice for a lot of people. There are more places in Ventura who are worth to explore. One of my favorite is Simone’s Coffee And Tea. It is on 7818 Telegraph Road in the corner on the right next to CVS. I’ve never spent much time looking around that shopping area, until one day I really craved for a coffee and walked in the store. Surprisingly this little oases has a lot to offer.
Next to regular coffee, it has specialty coffee like Red Eye, Bianco-, Mint-, Cinna-Mocha, Brevi Latte, Vanilla Cream Latte, Con Panna and more. Non coffe specialty drinks are ( just to name a few ) Chai Creme, Chai Cocoa, Bianco Cocoa and Steamed Moo. They also have assorted Blended Beverages, Cold Beverages, Non Coffee Shakes and Fruit Smoothies.
Optional to your coffee you have the choice of getting organic milk, lactose free milk, soy milk or almond milk. Just ask.
What I really like and recommend for people who have intolerance to certain foods like me are the gluten free options they have, besides the regular baking goods.
I have seen Chocolate Chippers, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Lemon Poppyseed Scones and Apricot Almond Scones, which is my favorite.
The Apricot Almond Scones is very soft and moist While the Chocolate Chippers are harder. They are all Vegan certified and for gluten free food super delicious!
Inside you will see things you can buy. They just had a 50% sale on Christmas goodies.
Ventura is a great place for vacation and they have things you can get as a souvenier.
I enjoy going there, the coffee is good and it is something different from regular coffee shops.
Definitely a place to try out! 🙂
