Two of the street parking spaces had been removed to make way for a streetside patio, while the inside had been re-configured to showcase merchandise, wines, and beans from Brother's Coffee, their choice of local roaster. Following brief perusal of the shelves, we took to a Cappuccino and Iced Latte, both priced at $4 each.
It is worth noting that the barista was not particularly friendly during our visit and reacted quite coldly at our requests for straws and sweetener, slightly tossing them in our direction instead of awaiting reception on the other side of barrier.
Lining the west edge of Westwood Park were a handful of cherry blossom trees that many stopped to admire on their way about and around the space.
The cookie was visibly similar to that of my own batch, however varied vastly in pliability and price (at a whopping $3.25!). Crunchy edges and a uniformly toasted underside proved superiority over my sugary, more delicate almond flour-containing rendition; satisfying shards of chocolate and generally minimal dough ensured toothsomeness without overbearing sweetness.
A gentle breeze filled the air, providing solace from the beaming UV rays. The pleasant climate conditions were greatly appreciated, for the queue persisted upwards of ten minutes. Another five minutes or so ensued once inside.
