Sure House, Orrville, Chai



Sure House Coffee opened in Orrville.  I went on opening day


The line was long, people were excited to have a coffee shop in town.  Even though it was a coffee shop I waned to see what tea they had.




There were some fun tea/chai options.




I liked the vibe.  It was clean and simple.  Since it was opening day I wasn't sure if they had just not completed the decor or if they are going for the minimalistic look. Either way, I liked it.

I also liked the handsome, hip looking guys behind the counter.  It was nice to see men who knew what they were doing. Nothing against teenagers, but I felt like the guys knew what they were doing and I was going to get professional service.  
They were also dressed for the part.  I thought that they looked like guys I would see in a big city like NYC or Europe.  





Here is the coffee drip station.



Pastry area





I purchased a chai with coconut milk. I have to say the service was good, but the chai flavor was only so so.  It was very generic and nothing special. It was maybe a little too sweet too.  I think maybe they need to have me come in and help them tweak their chai.

I will be back to see if the flavor was a first day issue, or if that is the way it always tastes.



I have to say they have a fantastic back drop- Who wouldn't love to have an Orrville water tower in the background. I think it is perfect for photos #Orrville

Beacon cafe, Winesburg, Chai

This cafe is right on 62.

Address2157 U.S. 62, Winesburg, OH 44690
Phone(330) 359-0742


I was in Holmes County playing tourists with some friends. On my way home I was looking for some warm chai and I stumbled upon this cute cafe!!




They seemed to have a nice menu too, but I wasn't hungry.  



It's nice and clean.I'd love to come back and hang out a little longer here. It is a very nice set up.









Their chai was very good. It was not a liquid concentrate, it was a powered blend.  And I enjoyed it very much.  It was a nice smooth blend.  Perfect for a cold day.


They even have a nice seating area outside.  It's a great area too.





This is the back, where the parking is located.



This is the exterior of the cafe, parking in the back.





My frothy lid looks like a smile!!!!

Diet Pu-erh cake tea


My friend Carrie bought this Pu-erh diet tea cake. when we were in Old Colorado Springs.    She was told that if she drank it they said she should she would lose 6 pounds a week.  She bought the cake, it was around $25.


She had me make it for her, she said it was "jacking" her up.  Making her feel jittery and cranky.  So instead of throwing it away she sent it to me to try.  




I had trouble getting past the green tea flavor. So, despite the smile I really did not like the tea.




I guess this is not the option for me to loose 50 pounds :)
