This Friday I got to have a late lunch with a dear friend. We really needed a good catch up date and we both happened to be off Friday afternoon. She suggested we head to one of her favorite places, Cafe Java in Round Rock. It took us a bit to order as we did have a lot of catching up to do. I was also overwhelmed by the menu, as everything sounded so delicious. I finally selected the Whole Lotta Love Latte. This delicious drink was made with espresso, honey, hazelnut syrup, half and half, whipped cream, and turbinado. It was a perfect combination on a cooler fall afternoon.
My next choice was breakfast or lunch. I’ve never been a huge breakfast person and I love sandwiches, so I opted for lunch. I channeled Mike and picked a Philly cheesteak sandwich and went with a side of chicken tortilla soup. I quickly realized that I had made another excellent choice. The soup was warm and had great flavors without being too bland or too spicy. A side of tortilla chips helped add a little bit of crunch or flavor to my soup. My cheesesteak was awesome too! The meat was cooked to perfection and combined well with the green peppers, onions, melty cheese and toasted french bread. After a morning of work, I was hungry and cleaned my plate. I will definitely be taking Mike to try this cheesesteak. I had a wonderful visit with my friend and got to try a fabulous new place. It’s not especially close to home, but it was definitely worth the drive. I cant wait to go back and try more of what Cafe Java has to offer.
