Who knew??

There is now a coffee shop right on Yorktown Beach! This is one of favorite little spots. Its not to far of a drive and its such a nice drive on the parkway!

Its like the most kid friendly beach in our opinion, not too crowded, not a crazy rowdy bunch either. Also they have it roped off so that you cant go too deep. Just watch for jellyfish!

The Green mountain coffee shop is super good! Its attached to a Ben and Jerrys. They have a wide vareity of every coffee drink you can imagine, even some blended up with ice cream, yum!! There can be a line out the door at times but it is worth the wait. The staff is friendly, quick, and efficient. There is plenty of seating inside and out. It is a fun place, the decor is bright and cheerful, pretty clouds painted on the wall. It is definitely pricey, we must warn you.

Bean score then, the moment you have all been waiting for, beach pictures!!!

I’m sure you must have noticed by now that my son (bean 1) wears his gloves 24/7, yes, he even sleeps in them. Everyone has their quirks I suppose. It does get a little tricky at places like the beach. Haha!

Bean 2 may need to start wearing gloves, haha. He doesn’t like the feeling of anything on his hands and feet. If he steps on a crumb he runs to me, “Momma, momma” sticks his foot up in the air and trusts that I will remove it immediately. So this made the sand at the beach was interesting for him too. These are the things that will be hilarious when they are all grown up and we think back and cherish even the silliest of memories.

Oldie but goodie

We have really been on a winning streak lately guys. Every coffee shop we touch turns to gold. Haha! No, but really, we are finding the best places. This is something we are truly passionate about and enjoy so thank you faithful followers and new followers! We are honored that you have choosen to take this journey with us! Momma bean still gets a rush everytime she enters a new coffee shop. Seeking out coffee shops in each and every new town we go to has always been our thing. Blogging about it now just makes it that much better. Anyway, our audience has spoken and we listened, we have been working on adding many more Hampton Roads area coffee shops. You guys are going to love this place!

This coffee shop is so unique in the way its set up. There are different rooms that are seperated by half walls so its still very open and spacious feeling. They thought of everyone when they designed this place. There’s a back screened in porch type of room that has a large variety of games and is perfect for families, kids, babies. The main room has comfy couches and a fireplace, relaxing, good for studying or dates. There’s a room to the side with tables good for larger groups, meetings, etc. The staff is very friendly. The drink selection is outrageously good!  To give you an idea poppa bean had the cinnamon roll latte which literally tasted just like a cinnamon roll. Momma bean couldnt resist the name and description of my drink, the butter crunch, which has almond roca. Ive never even seen this flavor and I was so excited. But honestly and unfortunately it wasnt good, bit of a let down. Should have got the cinnamon roll, once I tried that nothing could compare. This is the first coffee shop in Norfolk, and still going strong, and I can see why. Any place that gives you a whopping 3 shots in a large is worth going to! Check it out beans!
