Beary good coffee

Today we went to the BEST coffee shop! Actually, it is our first ever PERFECT SCORE!!!

Sleepy bear coffee, as soon as we heard the name we knew we had come across a winner! This is truly a hidden gem that absolutely everyone needs to check out, especially every parent!!! It is a family owned business.  We had the pleasure of meeting the owners daughter today. The whole family works together at this business. Everyone is so sweet and welcoming. They went above and beyond to make our experience wonderful in every way, shape and form. They have over 50 scrumptious drink flavors. Feeling healthy? They have fresh smoothies and soothing herbals tea as well. Momma bean choose an iced latte with peanut butter and banana,  it is definitely my new favorite, the best drink I’ve ever had. Poppa bean had a hazelnut coffee and he said it was the best he ever had too! As you know he is very picky.  It is very reasonably priced.  Which I will go into more later about what they offer the kids! This place is simply perfect in every way. We couldn’t think of a complaint if we had to.

As we entered we were greeted by these friendly bears outside. Big hit with the kids!

Pick your treat, then pick your room. There is the main room with a nice big flat screen TV and comfy couches, nice big windows, and a beautiful fireplace. Even enjoy conversation with the very sweet and knowledgeable barista.

This is the Forest Room. It’s a nice, quiet, private room open for meetings, groups, or any gathering you would like. There is a nice big flat screen TV in this room for your entertainment as well.

Sorry the picture below is blurry but this is another great find as you wander through, there is a few stuffed toys and even a little dollhouse inside the log.

Shopping bean

Java chocolate cafe is inside of the Virginia Center Commons mall and it is not your average “mall coffee” it is truly good! It is a family owned and operated business which we love and support as much as possible. The taste is superb from one of the best plain lattes weve ever had to their amazing peppermint patty! The atmosphere is welcoming but a little small, esp for large families or groups and the staff is always speedy and sweet. Now, lets see how they did…

There is something magical about a train table. It draws in kids like a magnet. This coffee shop is one of our favorites near home. It is a unique place themed around the train that runs behind it. It has many cool quirky qualities our family of beans always enjoys.

One of the cool things about this place is that they have a listening room where they have live music and a full bar. They have a delicious,  reasonably priced full menu. Their hummus is the best! They have a great little kids area. A take one, leave one book section. Our favorite special thing about this place is their ice cubes are made of black coffee  so that your iced coffee never gets watered down. Okay, this trains about to depart onto the scores…
