One weakness of many in the mornings is a good cup of coffee! I have highlighted Bed and Breakfast locations, Parks, etc. in the past, but I think this might be the most important week!

Thanks A Latte is such a cute name, that it stood out right away to me. It is a Coffee and Gift Boutique, featuring Larry’s Beans drip coffee and gifts from Capri Blue and Mudpie. If you are looking for a new place to stop before your work day, or just a place to meet a friend during your lunch break, try Thanks A Latte!
