Crema is my favorite cafe in Portland… but when I’m in L.A. it’s all about Urth Caffe. I’m on a soy chai latte kick right now and theirs have just the right amount of spice without too much sugary sweetness. It’s a comfy cozy good morning in a cup. Surrounded by friends (our first time together since Memorial Day on the Vineyard in 2007) and a little verbal sparring with Peter made for a perfect morning. As you can see I had just won the latest bout.
