The holidays are a magical time of year, and time to hit Deck the Hall Street! ✨ I adore the festivity and decor of the season! To me, December 1st officially kicks off the season so to get in the spirit, I hit up #deckthehallstreet at @fictioncoffeeshop ! For a month, Fiction Coffee transforms itself into a festive and cheerful Christmas themed wonderland with wreaths, lights, a tree and a fireplace with stockings. 🎄❄️⛄️ To boot, a custom mural painted by @allikdesign adorns the side of the building and festive coffee mugs in the shapes of Santa, reindeer and snowmen abound for customers dining in to enjoy their hot beverages. I enjoy the Fa La La Latte with cinnamon and lavender. There are other drinks cooked with a simple espresso machine like Peppermint Dreams and O Christmas Tea. There are also coffee free drinks like White Christmas Wassail and HoHoHot Cocoa!
I also have to point out that I will no longer be eating croissants. I’ve discovered Kouign amann and I’m never going back. It’s similar to a croissant but has a caramelized sugar bottom. The layers are flaky, buttery and sugary… a phenomenal combo with the crunch on the bottom. I can not recommend this pasty enough!! A++ for the Kouign amann!
Be sure to go visit this adorable shop for coffee and pastry (and @tacodeli tacos should you want a taco!) Dress warm if it’s cold out and grab a photo of your adorable holiday mug and the mural! It’ll be a new holiday tradition as it has become one for me!
