I love finding new places and sharing them with you and yesterday I found the "Next" big coffee shop that is going to give Starbucks a run for their money. It's called "Next" and you can visit their web-site at http://www.nextcoffeecompany.com/. They are located on 59th Ave south of the 101 Freeway in Glendale in the Citadel shopping center. Their motto is "great coffee, great food and your place to study, learn, think and find the money, when you need it, for your NEXT big thing.
I had a coffee drink that I have never had or even heard of before....The Cola Head. It was a Coca-Cola drink over ice with a shot of espresso and vanilla. Yum, yum! Maybe you could try the Himalayan Hammer or the Granola Latte. I guess they have a barista that has been in the business for over 20 years and is very creative. Finally a place that serves more then just a Cafe Mocha. Oh, and they have food, smoothies, music on the weekends and even different trunk shows. So, if you have never been there and you need a new place to hang out, then give them a try. Oh, and tell them Andi sent you and you heard about them thru this blog.
