Okay seriously. This place is so good! I heard about it through someone on Instagram (can’t remember who), and I rode my bike up Milwaukee to visit it. It’s right by Bushwacker’s Cider.
They juice hundred’s of pounds of vegetables, fruit, and nuts every day. They specialize is juice fasts-you can actually have them deliver to your house or work. I just happen to like fresh juice and had a craving for a thick nut milk. So I picked out The Ohm. It was perfect. Exactly what I wanted: hazelnuts, dates, cinnamon, and filtered water.
If you are undecided, they have no problem opening up bottles for you to sample the flavors. Next time, I am getting the lemon, ginger, honey one.
They even have these vintage inspired postcards -FOR FREE! I took one or six.
Spent time with some of my best friends on Saint Patrick’s Day watching them get tattoos at Martian Art’s Tattoo Studio on Hawthorne Street. The lighting in the shop was lovely, and I managed to get some dramatic shots. (See the full set on flickr)
There’s so many great things about our new neighborhood. I’ve mentioned the many coffee shops, and here is a cappuccino from one called The Ugly Mug. They brew Stumptown coffee which is a local roaster.
This shop has a high shelf filled with a lot of mugs. (ha!) They serve a handful of pastries, coffee and espresso, and even beer and wine. They’ve got games and books and the rumour is that you can bring your dog inside although I haven’t witnessed that yet.
I’ve come in today to start working on some photos that need to be edited. It’s been a whirlwind of unpacking, planting, meeting new people, job hunting, and going for walks. David and I are both so amazed by all the lush greenery and the budding blooms of spring. It’s incredible. You can find more photos of our journey on our instagram feeds here or here.
Matt’s Big Breakfast is delicious! They focus on simply prepared local ingredients. You may have heard of the incredibly long wait, but they’ve recently relocated just a block north into a larger building! With bathrooms! Yay! I ordered a cherry bourbon sausage and a fried egg. So.freaking.good.
After that, we drove over to Giant Coffee-Chanelle ordered a macchiato and I got an espresso con panna. They serve Four Barrel Coffee which is from San Francisco. Very third wave style.
I added the whole set of photos to my flickr sets here and here.
when stephanie was in town, we met up with brenda and becky in downtown phoenix.
we grabbed coffee at jobot, then walked over to the sunflower fields.
afterwards, we went downtown to see where brenda worked.
