The Best Cup of Coffee I Have Ever Had

While staying in Pitman, New Jersey I had the pleasure of walking to the cutest little coffee shop I have ever been to. It was called Casa de Coffee, a place of comfort and charm.

On a nice day there is plenty of seating outside to enjoy your morning brew.I know I would be sitting on this porch a lot if I lived here.

The women at the counter started to know me by name, they loved talking with me and telling me all about the history of the town. Pitman is a very historic neighborhood filled with stories that date back all the way to the 1700’s.

On my first visit  I grabbed some chocolate covered espresso beans the perfect morning treat:)

This was my spot at the window, I loved watching people as they passed by with their dogs and children. I wish we had more coffee shops like this in my town.

On my last day in NJ I splurged and got a Banana Nut Muffin and a cup of Coconut Cream Flavored Coffee.  I forgot how much I loved muffins, this has inspired me to get to baking when I get home.

Don’t you just love small coffee shops hidden in the rough?! I just love all of the character and they even have Jazz bands that play on occasion. I have always dreamed of owning my own cafe, and if I did it would be a spitting image of this one.

What’s your favorite coffee stop?

I used to work at Starbucks in college, but never got really into coffee. Now I only drink it when I'm cold!

Coffee is awesome. I can't go a morning without it.

What an adorable shop! We have a place nearby called Waves that has great soy lattes and is open late- perfect for studying.

I worked at Starbucks while I was in high school and college so I'm kinda partial. Plus I don't know of any really cute coffee shops here:(

Oooh coconut cream coffee sounds amazing! There's a little coffee shop called the Edge Cafe on the East Side of Providence (RI)- it has good coffee, great people watching seats, & cupcake happy hour. What more could a girl ask for?

That shop looks so cute :) There's a coffee shop in Gettysburg where my grandma lives and I love it! It even has a beautiful garden in the back with flowers and veggies used in the shops sandwiches. I got a coffee drink there that was made with pb! Amazing.

This place looks great. I always love finding little places like this while traveling :)

My fav coffee shop closed down and I totally don't want to talk about my sadness. That was nearly a year ago, so I've had time to recover. :)
