On a rainy night, a dreamer

There's something so endearing about eating out on a rainy night-- especially when you're alone. It sounds peculiar but let me set the scenario: you're alone, it's raining, you go to a quiet coffee shop, order a sandwich and coffee then read a good book. To me, that scene is perfection-- it's simple, romantic and nostalgic :)

Well, I had the pleasure of (again) experiencing that kind of night. On this particular instance though, the feeling was elevated a notch because I chose to go to one of my favorite cafes of all time: Seattle's Best Coffee.

I have very fond memories of Seattle's because it was in that cafe that I learned to dine alone. I think I was in the 5th grade then. I enjoyed every moment I spent there that eventually, the practice grew on me and up to this day, hanging out alone in coffee shops is still one of my favorite activities.
One of the things that makes me go back to SBC is their pesto, tomato, and mozzarella panini. It is so good! SBC actually tops my list of BEST pesto panini/pasta of all time! It's just one of those "best kept secrets" of SBC aficionados.
Another of my most "memorable" drinks is SBC's Almond Mocha Joy. It is so distinct and unique that I feel like it holds the true "SBC" trademark. I tried to recreate this at Starbucks by ordering white chocolate mocha with almond and coconut syrup but it didn't work. Ha!

I really had the most wonderful time at Seattle's Best Coffee tonight. It's the rain, wonderful food, amazing coffee, and great read that made the moment perfect :)

How 'bout you girls, do you like dining out alone on rainy nights?


  1. Totally want some coffee now.

  2. Wow. It's raining here in Cebu; makes me wanna go to Seattle's Best and order Almond Mocha Joy. So tempting; Thanks for sharing. Cheers!:-)

  3. yes yes, dining out by yourself in a very peaceful and relaxing place like Seattle's is the perfect escape from the city without actually leaving it :)

  4. Oh yummy! gotta try that. my fave is Starbucks' tomato, mozzarella & basil on whole wheat foccacia! :D
