the village grind

this past weekend, justin was gone visiting his sister, so instead of having some me time at the house, i decided to go down to the village of west greenville. 

first up was a stop at knack for some good reading material. per my new year's resolution, i picked up issue two of trouve magazine. after that, it was just a block to the neighborhood's latest addition, the village grind. this cute little coffee shop was absolutely glowing with winter sunlight, which made the wood counters, oriental rugs and bistro tables all the more inviting. the atmosphere was great, perfect for cozying up with a good book or chatting with a friend, and the coffee was even better. i got a classic cappuccino and thought it was one of the best i've had in a long while. i will say this though: the village grind is fairly small (think a max capacity of 20 people), so if you're with a large group, you might have to take your coffee to go on a busy day, especially since i can see this place becoming really popular. i can't wait to go back and try some of their more adventurous drinks, like the espresso with house-made cajeta syrup (a mexican goat milk caramel) or the lavender mocha. check out more photos below:

i couldn't quite take as many photos as i would have liked since it was a fairly busy afternoon, and i didn't want to disturb anyone enjoying their corner of the cafe. so here are a few more pictures of the decor taken from the village grind instagram account.
