Today I want to introduce you to one of my favorite coffee shops (I have many, but we'll start here).
Coffee Connection is a little shoe box of a joint not far from where I live in a suburb called Meiners Oaks.
Growing up, this area used to be considered a little sketchy, but lately it's really begun to thrive as a new gastro-hub. Some of my favorite eateries are now located here!
I love when the underdog succeeds. Don't you?
Elias knows how to pull some heartstrings. But he's right, you know.
Aside from the unique art hanging on the walls, there are a few other reasons to visit the CC. One of which is the locally made baked goods. They have the largest selection of gluten-free goodies I've ever seen, and they are always fantastic. Flourless Chocolate Mocha Cake anyone?
Moving on to the back patio...
Here you will find the caffeine addicts in their natural habitat, voraciously consuming as much of the magical elixir as possible.
I must confess: The main reason I wanted to be out and about today was because I wanted to show off my new Keds!
I'm wearing a men's button down shirt I found at a second-hand store by Threads & Heirs, BDG jeans from Urban Outfitters, and Oxford Champion Keds in 'festival fuschia'.
Hard to have a bad day when you're wearing pink shoes!
