Lola Coffee Date

Earlier this week Scott and I made a trip out to Lola Coffee. I usually go by myself twice a week, but it's always nice to have him with me to sit and sip coffee at the cute tables they have there.

Here is what I saw:

Amazing window light and the featured artwork of the month.

Pretty counter, yummy pastries, and the neatest coffee posters Oh, and that old door that has be converted to the shop menu board! Genius!

Scott checking out the Arts section of The Arizona Republic.

Two Lola iced coffees (iced coffee + shots of espresso! Yum!).

The traveling bag from Le Mode Accessories that has been going around the country since January, visiting different bloggers along the way.

More reading. My guys likes the newspaper. A guy SERIOUSLY after my own heart!

Pretty flowers, and one of my favorite buildings in downtown. I always feel like I'm in New York City when I go to Lola. Their shop has such a wonderful vibe and I just love spending time there.

What does your favorite coffee shop look like? What are your plans for today?


  1. my best friend is coming to visit me! i haven't seen her in almost 6 months. we're going to a vegan cafe then do some art and writing hopefully and walk around the lake!

  2. What a fantastic little coffee shop. I was just wondering if you've ever tried Lux? My friends and I are just mad about their coffee. ;D

  3. My fave coffee shop is a cozy place, with alternative music, fun people and good coffee <3

  4. I love how light and airy it is! It's funny you should say it reminds you of a New York coffee shop, because I'm living in Manhattan and I thought, "That looks a lot like 'Snice!" ('Snice is my favorite NYC coffee shop, and I like it so much because it reminds me of the coffee shop in the small PA town where I grew up-- I guess a good coffee shop just has a certain 'feel' to it!)

  5. Do you like your iced coffee black most often? Or do you sweeten it at all? (I'm always curious.) I always need just a little bit of cream or nonfat milk to take the bite off, and I like raw sugar, honey, or carmel syrup the best. But not too sweet.

    Today I got to go see PUPPIES! I'll post photos on my blog later. They're seriously so cute.

  6. I try to not drink coffee, because of it my favourite cafe is tea-oriented one. There are a lot of comfortable couches {on which you can sit, lie, sprawl, and do whatever you want} and eastern sweetmeats like baklava.
    Today my BF and I were vegetating and now I'm going to read a book:)

  7. Awww! I love it! Looks comfy and coffee, of course, looks delish!
