That's right, I have no coffee here at home. No real coffee I should say - I have coarse ground decaf (only in my home in case of guests), best for use in a French Press, which I also don't have access to. How does this happen to a girl who was raised in a coffee shop for the last 16 years, you may ask? I'm asking the same thing right now.
As I sit here with my weak, caffeine-free, sad cup o' joe on a Monday morning, I realize there are many ways this post could be titled. The Best Alternatives for Coffee in the Morning, Where to go for Coffee in South Buffalo When You Have None, How Coffee Makes Me Feel, An Ode to Coffee, My Not-so-Strange Addiction: Coffee, and the list goes on...
Sometimes the same-old, same-old just gets so, well, old...
If you've ever been into the cafe, you've probably noticed that we have a specials menu each day for lunch, offering something a little different for our customers to enjoy, on top of our everyday menu. Whether it's soup, sandwiches, or "dinner-type" meals, we like to mix it up so that you can come in multiple times a week and not get bored. And, let's face it, so we don't get bored either!
As some of you may have noticed, we recently got a spiffy new drink menu at the cafe. When we made the new menu we thought long and hard about some of the most frequently ordered things that weren't actually on the menu, as well as the things that we got the most questions about. We addressed those items by adding and removing some drinks.
Two of the new items that have made an appearance on our menu include the word macchiato. So what does is it mean?
Have you ever wondered where some of the ideas we have at the Comfort Zone come from? Whether it's the soup of the day, the desserts in the case, or the seasonal beverages we promote, it's a team of us that are constantly working to find new and exciting things to serve to our customers.
