Colonial coffee

Aromas Cafe
431 Prince George St
Williamsburg, VA

Hey Guys, if you live in, or plan to visit the Colonial Capital which is Williamsburg we have the place for you! It’s definetly one of our hometown favorites and managed by our good friend Angela (www.momspotoftea.blogspot.com) By now we hope you know you can trust us when we say it’s good coffee! They offer a full bakery and cafe menu with really off the wall items like our favorite Mac n’ cheese with bacon, cherry tomatoes, chives, and bbq chicken on top. They have a drink of the week which momma bean tries every single time we go and has yet to be let down. They also offer spiked smoothies and a spiked Irish coffee! Right in the heart of Colonial Williamsburg it’s packed full of tourist, locals, and William and Mary college students that flock there to get their hands on some good coffee! A major downfall in our opinion is that it is very expensive. They even charge almost a dollar extra for soy milk, ouch. It’s always slammed full with a good social atmosphere. Maybe, a place to meet Misses or Mr. right. Weekends usually include a local musician or poet. The walls are covered in art by the locals. Its kid friendly with very special food and desserts including smores and every kids favorite, goldfish. It is also dog friendly with a beautiful back patio area where pets are welcome to hang out with you while you enjoy your coffee. Come stop by and be sure to sip it on a stroll down Duke of Glouster st. where you’ll see men wearing funny hats, plenty of friendly puppies, and even a little shopping!

On to the score than shall we (colonial slang for ya)

Yoga bean

There is an amazing new place in Williamsburg called, The Living Room. It is an awesome coffee shop but it is so much more. The owner is a very sweet man. He is very knowledgeable in the world of coffee. He even roasts his own beans in house. He has very unique, full flavored blends. The espresso is top of the line for sure! Its really nice to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and conversation with the owner who not only knows his stuff but is passionate about coffee. The coffee shop is big. Cool colors, neat decor and artwork. Outdoor seating. There is also an ever changing menu. The food is incredibly delicious from blueberry scones to vegetarian chilly. Everything they offer is so so good!

This coffee shop even offers…

Drum roll please…

Yoga!!!

How cool is that? The teachers have been doing yoga for over 20 years and eat, breathe, live yoga. If your looking for yoga classes this is your place. Yoga and coffee, so good right?

But wait, theres more. Live music often. A recording studio! And a clothing consignment. This is your one stop shop.
