Early at Arabica

Since I have declared the first week of fall, as my week of coffee exploration I was up and out early this morning.

With plans to meet a girlfriend for brainstorming and coffee, we chose a place that was half way between both of our homes and met at Arabica on Detroit and 116th.

As I crept into the store, the windows gave off a welcoming glow. Not yet light out, the pastry case gleamed with excitement for a new day. I ordered a skim vanilla latte which came to me in a tall glass mug (fancy!) and a white chocolate cranberry scone. The latte was very hot, the steam warmed my face as I insisted on burning my tongue for the first few sips. The scone was fresh, unlike any of the bakery sweets from the national coffee house names, it was rich with butter and tasted just-made.
I would have shared some scone with you, but it was gone in a heartbeat!

I would deffinatley recommend this Arabica location (look at last weeks posts for a review of the University Heights location) as a place to bring your laptop, your magazine and order breakfast before strolling into the office. My morning there was pleasant a wonderful way to kick off a Tuesday.

yeah, all evidence of a scone was gone before i was on the scene! i have always enjoyed that Arabica, as a VERY comfortable coffee shop.

have they replaced the ripped and torn couches. Still a quaint and different Arabica. It's a cool section of Detroit with Brothers across the street and that vintage clothing store right there.
