I’m always looking for a comfortable place to sit down, have a cup of coffee and write and we’re lucky to have several great spots close to Alexan Auburn Lakes luxury apartments.
My go-to for fancy coffee drinks is a hot mocha and DeNovo Coffee on Louetta Road offers a Royal Mocha that’s simply incredible. If you’re looking for Kolaches, they sell those too. A step up from the stale bagel you’ll find at some of the national chain coffee shops.
The Blue Giraffe in Old Town Spring is way more than a coffee shop. The combination internet café and gift shop brews a long list of coffee flavors and serves breakfast, a variety of sandwiches, soups, desserts and more. Check out open mic night on Thursdays.
Perfect Blend Bakery & Cafe is especially tasty this time of year. The café is selling king cakes leading up to Fat Tuesday, and if you’ve never tried king cake, you’ll want to pick up one of these delicious treats. I personally recommend the traditional cinnamon but adding cream cheese kicks it up a notch.
Another place to grab a scrumptious treat is Euro Bakery & Cafe, family owned and operated where everything is made from scratch. You have to try the lemon tart. Perfect with a cup of Greek coffee.
But one of my favorite places to get work done with a nice cup of coffee is right here at Alexan Auburn Lakes. The game room has a java bar and WiFi throughout the clubhouse. It’s a great place to write, in fact, it’s where I’m writing this!
