Coffee.... the over the counter drug that gets many of us thru our hectic days. How do you prefer yours? I know someone who daily devours quarts of coffee (he likes to use an emptied and washed mayo jar as a cold coffee mug). Another friend of mine has a very specific blend of ingredients that only Starbucks can brew properly. Personally I'm not a daily coffee abuser. Instead I'd rather enjoy a coffee here and there from local cafes, or sip on a cup of cider or thai iced tea. Here are some of my favorite places to enjoy a not so average cup of jo on a pleasant Sunday morning:
|Cappuccino from Cafe Delmarette|
Cafe Delmarette is one of my favorite places to grab a cappuccino and a sandwich in the mornings. Their tasty menu and artisan coffees make it easy to get out of my warm bed in exchange for a delicious meal. I'm excited to share my feature on this cafe later in the week!
|Thai iced tea from Real Thai Kitchen|
If you are looking for authentic Thai food in Santa Cruz, CA give Real Thai Kitchen a try. They use lots of citrus, lemongrass, and spices in their dishes. And you can't leave without trying their sweet thai iced tea!
|Amber tea with cream from Wine Wizards|
Wine Wizards in Stockton, CA offers a wide variety of loose leafed teas to satisfy anyone's taste buds! My personal favorite is the subtle flavor of Darjeeling.

Do you have any morning coffee rituals?
