I love discovering new places to try. Whether it's for ice cream, dinner or for coffee! Sometimes we forget what's in our own backyard and neighboring cities. On Monday, I had a meeting at Peet's Coffee & Tea in Naperville, IL. Not only was I eager for this meeting (modeling related), I'm kind of obsessed with coffee....so I was looking forward to a nice cup of joe!
When I pulled up, I noticed the outside seating with bright colored umbrellas attached to the tables. How quaint! Inside, the atmosphere is similar to a Starbucks setting. Quiet, spacious, neutral colors, variety of seating arrangements (tables, booths, arm chairs). I instantly felt a nice, calm energy. I chose a small table near a window to seat two.
Their menu had quite the variety! From iced lattes, teas, coffee blends, specialty drinks, pastries and finger foods, the possibilities were endless! And if you're a foodie like me, you know it was hard for me not to say "one of everything, please!" The barista at the counter helped me in making my drink choice. I LOVE green tea lattes and am always eager to try one outside of Starbucks to compare taste and texture. When I ordered a small iced green tea latte, the barista suggested adding a flavor shot, which I've never had before! So why not?! Throw in a vanilla flavor shot! One sip....and I was hooked! Smoothly blended, matcha and vanlla flavor mixed together over ice....mmmmmmm! It was probably one of the best iced green tea lattes I have ever had!
On way way out I noticed a large stand full of take home things to purchase like coffee grounds, mugs, traveler tumblers, etc. I look forward to coming back and bringing my friends to try and enjoy some of Peet's Coffee & Tea!
