Coffee Shop Series No. 8

6:00 AM

Happy September everyone! Who else is counting down the days until we can officially pull out our sweaters and boots?! If you haven't already seen or heard, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is already available at Starbucks, so it's only a matter of time, right?! Personally, I am S.T.O.K.E.D.

August was such a fun month! Looking back, we were able to get out to a lot of different restaurants, despite the guys being in study mode for their Step 2 exam. Nevertheless, they're officially done as of this week! Hallelujah! We're already planning where all we're going to be exploring this coming month, and boy, does it make my stomach growl. Looking forward to another month!

Anyway, on to what you're really here for, our 3 coffee shop spotlights for the month.
