Last week after a club meeting and ultimate frisbee game, I went to SOLID Coffee Roasters. When I went in, it was the perfect minimalistic coffeehouse ever. There were wooden tables, white walls, the typical chalkboard menu, and succulents at every table. I was greeted with a warm welcome and the barista helped me right away. I ordered a cappuccino and a toffle, which is a waffle made out of tater tots served with cheese, sour cream, bacon, and chives. My mom ordered an americano. We were going to take it to-go but the barista told us that it would take 15 minutes to make the toffle so we should just have the coffees for there. So we waited in the coffeehouse for the toffle with our drinks. When I got my cappuccino, I looked at it and was in awe. THEY DO FOAM ART. Here's what my cappuccino looked like.
The cappuccino was pretty bitter when I first drank it, so I added about half a bag of sugar and it tasted better. And even though they serve it as a hot drink, it wasn't as hot as other places are. It was more warm than hot, which in my opinion isn't bad. My mother, on the other hand, couldn't adjust her americano to her liking. At first, she didn't know americanos don't have milk in them; they're just straight coffee. So she went and asked for milk but it still didn't taste good to her, and so she added, I think, two and a half bags of sugar and then it was too sweet. She was just like screw this and fixed it up when we got home. After getting the toffle, we went home to enjoy it. Here is the toffle.
Omigoodness, it was so good. If you ever go to SOLID, get the toffle. Sure it cost $8.75 but it's so worth it. That's sour cream by the way, not butter.
Overall, I would rate SOLID a 3.5/5 on drinks and 5/5 on the toffle. Just the toffle because that's the only thing I tried. Thank you for reading this week's blog post. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back next saturday with something for y'all to read. Peace out.
