We meet again, Cafe Borgia. You knew I couldn’t stay away for long.
Seriously, Starbucks has nothing on this drink. The orange-infused frothy concoction is heaven in a cup. Jet City Espresso can do no wrong.
My friends and I have started a semi-monthly tradition of meeting for morning coffee before work on a random weekday each month. It’s a great excuse to break from the normal routine and see each other in normal clothes (as opposed to our normal training gear). It’s also nice to chill, relax, and just enjoy the early morning.
Winnie was excited about the Cafe Borgias, too! Well, she was excited her mom got one since that meant she could have one of the dog treats Jet City has out for their furry customers. 😉
Jessica, the shop’s owner, was as friendly as ever greeting all of the coffee enthusiast as they entered the shop ready for their morning jolt. She was so sweet, immediately recognizing my new haircut and asking about the wedding. I could easily stay in the shop all day just talking to her.
I ordered a Dark Chocolate Cherry Paleo Scone to go with my coffee.
The scone was served warm and smelled richly of chocolate and almonds. Since I’m not sure I’ve ever had a paleo baked good before, I was simply curious what it tasted like. From what I understood, to make it paleo, she switched out regular flour with almond flour. I’m sure there’s more to it than that, but that was how I understood it (my paleo knowledge is very minimal when it comes to baked goods).
The scone was great. She added almond butter to the batter, which gave it some sticking power. Otherwise, I’d say it pretty much tasted just like any other baked good, maybe a little denser.
We stayed and chatted for a while, then were all on our way a little before 8:00am. It was the perfect, relaxing way to start the day.
