Corner View in Salt Lake City Utah

Corner view's theme this week is "coffee". I don't drink coffee. What I do, do is eat coffee flavored treats. My aunt surprised me with this coffee flavored yummy in honor of this week's corner view.


Since it's all about our corner's though, I figured it would be appropriate to show you the coffee shop on the corner of our street. Literally you could walk there from my house in one minute. I haven't tried their coffee, but their biscotti and hot chocolate is yum! (and yes, I'm a "dunker")

Jane also encouraged us, to answer a few of these questions she put on her blog.

How do you take your coffee? With chocolate.. hold the coffee

French press, percolator, espresso, or other? percolator is a weird word.

These people invite you to sit down and have a cup of coffee with them..

yeah, this week was a hard one for us non-coffee drinkers. Heck with the coffee at your corner shop... I'm drooling over the idea of bagels. I really miss them! Great post.

That's actually how I started my coffee addiction: by eating it (lots of a coffee flavored icecream called "nonno's cup")

Not coffee, but chocolate yeah!

outi said...

oh my that chocolate cake in that photo..

melissa said...

"Joe Morley's" restaurant in Midvale has a Mocha Ice Cream cake that's to die for.

That's my take on coffee.

caitlin said...

Melissa! What seriously cracks me up is I had never even heard of that place, but we tried it for the first time last week and I got that dessert! It was so yum!

Kimmie said...

how fun!
and what a sweet auntie to bring such a treat!
Lot's of chocolate - hold the coffee - too funny!

Erin said...

Such a colorful little shop and the cake looks yum-o!

ladybug-zen said...

i agree. percolator is a weird word. and that looks like a really cute neighborhood joint. i think i'd have tea or cocoa there anytime.

MisterE said...

I will take cake anytime. Your Java Jo's looks much better then the one on my way to work! Perhaps because its not in a Kmart parking lot.

Kari said...

I love coffee flavoured treats too - especially coffee ice cream.
Nice pictures.
