Coffee & Tea Collective [ 631 9th Ave ]
Needed my coffee fix before I headed to Balboa Park for a museum assignment yesterday, and stopped by the East Village location of North Park’s Coffee & Tea Collective. I immediately fell in love with the organic use of open space, & their collaboration with the smoothie joint, Juice Saves, made this place the number one spot for my indecisiveness to explode. I ordered a latte(forgot to adjust the mug angle for the ampersand, oops) and it was pretty and intense. Pretty intense. Bliss was fully achieved with avocado & mayo on sourdough toast backed by a soundtrack of The Byrds’ Mr. Tambourine Man.
