I found myself in Huntsville, Alabama last weekend - in need of a cup of coffee on an early Saturday morning, so I pulled out my phone and typed “coffee shop” into googlemaps. Several popped up in the downtown area, but only one was open at 8 (that was remotely close to where I was headed) - the Honest Coffee Roasters.
What a beautiful coffee shop! It was light and airy. The mustard yellow leatherette chairs gave a sophisticated warmth to the stained concrete floors, black iron accents and blonde wood.
They had a small but fun menu with pastries, breakfast sandwiches and coffee drinks, but the cranberry scone with a lemon/honey glaze had my undivided attention.
And just LOOK at that beautiful cappuccino!
I was totally inspired by the cool retro vibe of the place, so I sat there and drew out a fun coffee shop mash-up. I’ve been really having fun with these food-collages lately…
