It’s Mardi Gras! Someone Flash Us!

Hey fellow coffee lovers,

It is Mardi Gras! Whoo hoo! This has literal relevance to me OTHER than the fact that it’s FAT TUESDAY. Which gives us all an excuse to eat doughnuts. Here at Sweet Spot, we don’t actually have doughnuts. We *do* have lots of delicious cupcakes and desserts, however. Which means you should come in. And eat some. And eat some more. Trust me, it doesn’t even count, it’s Fat Tuesday! Beads for everyone!

Also, someone just came in with a large bottle of a) white wine and b) some vodka-like drink, which reminded me that we are a BYOB. Come in and drink and eat desserts! You can do that! Because it’s Mardi Gras!

(And really, what else are you going to do on your boring, relatively chilly Tuesday afternoon?)

Mundo’s guide to sustainable living: Orange Candles

That orange was delicious, but it still has more to give.  Fill half of an orange peel with cooking oil, leaving the core (wick) of the rind above the top. Let it sit a min or two so the oil is soak up and light.  It may take a little longer to light than a candle but it will burn for most of the day giving off a citrus aroma.

First post is for lovers

Hey everyone and welcome to the official blog of Cafe Sweet Spot! However you’ve found yourself here, we’re happy you’ve stopped on by. As it is February, the season of looove, we’ve decided to offer you something very special for the occasion: A new Valentine’s Day brew from Chestnut Hill Coffee called Red Beard: a dark roast made with looove. It has a hint of rose and just a bit of a bite… naughty! (Did I mention it’s made with looove?)

We’re also serving up a brand new dessert, a decadent raspberry cheesecake encased in a chocolate ganache and topped with a hershey kiss.

Both of these specials won’t last long, so grab your lover, friend, dog, or just bring yourself, and stop on in to Cafe Sweet Spot!
