Coffeeneuring Challenge: Rides 4 & 5

Saturday's coffeeneuring outing took us to Casa Latte, which is located at the intersection of State Highways 53 & 194. While its not located at the most picturesque of locations, their excellent coffee more than made up for this small shortcoming.DSCN1180
The approach.

Although it was cozy and warm inside, we had our coffee to go. We didn't want to overheat.

Trish had a Soy Cinnamon Mocha, while I had a Soy Turtle Mocha. We shared* a Birthday Cake Scone.

Since Trish was given a large instead of the medium she ordered, I made the ultimate sacrifice and finished it for her.

Coffee brings out the sun, which we were very grateful for on our chilly 18 mile trip.

Sunday's ride took us down the hill into Duluth to At Sara's Table/Chester Creek Cafe.

One nice thing about bikes is that they have no windows to scrape.

The shop is located about halfway down the hill in the Chester Park neighborhood, close to the UMD campus. It was a 10.6 mile round trip.

We each had Chai Lattes and shared* a Vegan Chocolate Cupcake.
The drinks were good. The cupcake was even better.

*When I say shared, I mean that I let her have a little bite while I inhaled the remainder.
