ace hotel downtown…

it’s the start of the new year & in los angeles all the buzz is about the ace hotel setting up shop. one can’t help, but want to see with their own eyes the transformation of the old united artists theatre. so i made a morning of this field trip & it is stunning. as a lover of breakfast, the meal at la chapter was one of the best plates ever, along with a latte from stumptown roasters. the staff was attentive & quite charming. so for all the talks about this “new kid”, it’s worth your time. welcome ace!

los angeles: “there is no better time than now, to find the best cups of coffee & beautifully pulled shots.”

stumptown coffee la stumptown coffee la3a few weekends ago, i decided to pay a visit to the newly built portland transplant, stumptown coffee roasters in dtla. just steps away from culinary darling bestia, this coffee shop is just more than a place for quick pick me up. this space urges you to linger, bump into strangers, learn & explore. the large roasting area & various rooms built within this restored building is a feast for the eyes & more importantly your tastebuds. a happy staff member offered this perfectly poured heart capp, while they filmed in the new space. 90 degree summer-like days in october? (not that i’m complaining) cold brew on tap? yep they’ve got that covered & so i’m surely digging this new addition…
