..there is plenty of counterculture in Utah and even more caffeine.
C is for - Counterculture with Coffee at Caffé Expresso, one of my favorite local drive through coffee spots. There is always someone happy and colorful to greet you at the window with your favorite coffee vice.
The coffee drive through nearest my house isn't very good, so rather than patronize it (I only have a latte once a week or so), I backtrack a bit to the another fabulous place, Java Joe's.
We do have the 'big guys' in abundance, including several grocery stores, but the local spots have much better coffee drinks and I do believe in the 'buy local' campaign. Fortunately there are many great local coffee spots from which to choose, including Beans and Brew, Salt Lake Roasting Company, Brew'D Awaking, and Daily Brews (to name a few).
C is also for Camaraderie, too!
The Stitch 'n Bitch gang meets in the Jitterbug Coffee Hop. Bruce has good sandwiches, a nice selection of drinks other than coffee, and a great atmosphere. It sits on a main thoroughfare, is centrally located, and has easy freeway access, so many people can join us from all over the Wasatch. It is one of the few places large enough for our group and it feels like a home away from home.
We have also started to meet on Sunday afternoons at a new place, Highland Perk. It's much smaller (and so is the Sunday group), but has enough room that we're comfortable. The food and coffee are also excellent.
C is for Katherine's (she spelled her name 'wrong'!) Colorful shoes, which she wore on Sunday. I fell in love with them.
Dorothy, eat your heart out.
