It’s national coffee day and you know what THAT means… Time to pull out the espresso shots!
If you’re looking for a prime spot to visit for this celebration of a day of all days, NATIONAL COFFEE DAY YAAAAS check out Scout Coffee on either Foothill Plaza or Downtown SLO on Garden Street.
The OG Scout on Garden Street downtown has been around since early 2014- another location more recently opened on Foothill. Both are filled with natural light, the smell of coffee, and happy people. Owners Jon and Sara Peterson call Scout “truly a community place, where the products, service, people and space just can’t be beat.”
Each batch of coffee is roasted locally at its sister company right in here SLO, HoneyCo. If you’re not into coffee (I respectfully disagree with you 😉 ) Scout also serves tea, house made sodas made with local produce, seasonal milkshakes, house-made almond milk, and fresh made baked goods (of which I personally recommend the legendary cookies).
There’s ample space to study and socialize, read a book and to enjoy your drink. Be forewarned however that there are not many power outlets at either location, which is not necessarily a bad thing… It just means you need to actually talk to people around you or stay off electronics for a little while. But if you’re looking for a place to study for long periods of time this might not be the right place.
The decor is refreshing and homey, the espresso delicious and the ambiance cheery and full of life.
The almond milk mocha is one of the greatest things I have ever tasted in my life (not a hyperbole, seriously!), and extra-special because the almond milk is home made in house. Anything you order will not disappoint.
Check out either location of Scout Coffee, today, and thank me later. Maybe by buying me one of those almond milk mocha’s…. 😉
