Super bean

Crossroads is a wonderful coffee shop, with two locations in Richmond. They have great coffee and yummy food. They have a lot of vegan friendly options. Their vegan chocolate chip cookies are to die for! Its a cool place inside, colorful, lots of seating and lots of board games to play. They have a big outdoor seating patio area as well.

It was here that I was introduced to something truly life changing for coffee lovers. Drum roll please…

“Thai coffee” Have ya’ll heard of this??? Its black coffee AND espresso with sweetened condensed milk. It is just the right blend of everything. Such a good and different flavor. Not to sweet, not to bitter. Very, very powerful. It is definetly one of my new favorites!

Baby beans were asleep in the car, so momma bean just ran in for a drink and a few pictures.

It was clearly very popular because it was crowded and they have two locations in Richmond.

We went to the 26 N. Morris street location by the way.

Vegan bean!

Harrison street cafe in Richmond is a buried treasure. It doesnt look like much from the outside, or inside for that matter but dont let apperance fool ya! Specialty coffee and food so good that it arracts everyone you can think of. In the little time we spent there we saw your average coffee drinkers, business men in suits, hippies, punk rockers, and even a gangster or two.

Momma bean had a triple mocha latte, that was totally incredible! Poppa bean enjoyed their dark roast, fair trade, organic coffee. The food was to die for! With the mantra, “great eats, no meats” they offer a full menu of vegan and vegetarian delights! Breakfast lunch and dinner, everything you can think of! Vegan omlettes, breakfast burritos, vegan chicken fried steak and chicken pot pie. They also have plenty of delicious dairy options. Momma bean had a huge breakfast burrito packed with egg, tomato, potato, yummy fake sausage and cheese. Poppa bean had the vegan burrito with eggs, sausage, and hot sauce. No body is surprised to hear that bean 1 had chocolate milk and bean 2 had yogurt and fruit. All the food and coffee was truly amazing.  I must say, it wasnt particularly kid friendly. They didn’t even have highchairs. BUT on the way we noticed the most awesome park. So after coffee, the park was a nice, short walk away. Perfect location!
