If you've been reading my blog since the olden days, you'll know that discovering and trying out new coffee shops has always been a passion of mine. Scott and I met in a coffee shop back in 2006, and have been exploring new ones together ever since. Recently we tried a new-to-us coffee shop in downtown Scottsdale called Berdena's! Tucked away on the edges of old-town, this sweet shop is super bright, is decked out in the prettiest tiles from the nearby Cement Tile Shop and their baristas make the best espresso tonics in the area.
Scott and I stopped by the shop right before New Year's Eve for a little end of the year coffee date and some time out of the house post-holiday. We all know how strange that week between Christmas and New Year's can be, so we felt a little outing would do us good! The shop was quite busy (although, it was a Saturday morning), but we found a corner spot and sat down to chat all things 2017 and what's to come in the new year for us.
Berdena's is known for their avocado toast, which Scott said was delicious! I missed out on the GF bread this time around, but will definitely be getting some next time we visit the shop. I did have a slice of potato quiche, though, and it was SO good! Word to the wise -- definitely don't skip the food the next time you're there!
After we finished up our dishes, we took a stroll around the area to work off some of our breakfast and soak in the fresh air. Phoenix always has warm winters, but this year it has been extra toasty around here. I've been kind of bummed out that I haven't been able to wear all of my knits and winter coats, but we're heading to Seattle in just a few day and you know I'll be wearing all the layers and coats while we're there!
Outfit Details --
On Wednesday we'll be landing in Seattle and heading straight for our next coffee date! We would love any suggestions for things to do, places to see, shops to visit, coffee houses to hang in, etc. in Seattle -- thank you SO much in advance!
