It's not easy to find good Asian food around Dallas, so Mr.Man and I often go to places like Carrollton, Richardson, and Plano on the weekends, to satisfy our Asian cravings. Last Saturday, after having some really good salted fish fried rice for a late lunch in Plano, we somehow felt like going to a coffeeshop instead of going straight home. We didn't know where to go, so we decided to try whatever we could find on our google map. And oh we're so glad that we did, because it lead us to found this cozy-hip coffeeshop in downtown Plano called Fourteen Eighteen.
When we walked in, we immediately fell in love with the 'living room' vibe that this coffeeshop has. I like the different sofas and chairs that all come in different colors and style, creating that casual, cozy vibe.
This corner by the window right here is my favorite, 'cause it has those vintage posters, that watercolor latte poster on the right, and the wooden wall in the background adds a little rustic feel to it too!
Next thing that caught my attention? This Emporium Pies sign right by the counter!!!
I had just gone to the Emporium Pies shop in Oak Cliff earlier that day, but couldn't find my favorite pie, Ebony and Ivory (basically a nutella pie - so GOOD). But you know what? The Fourteen Eighteen Coffeeshop had them! So I ordered a slice, a cup of hot caramel macchiato, and picked a cozy sofa for us to chill on.
Love this floral table by our sofa. The coffee is excellent of course (roasted at Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters), goes perfectly with my mighty good slice of hazelnut pie. Where is the picture of the pie? Sorry, no time for photo, J was stuffing his face with it before I could even get a shot of it.
It's amazing how sometimes, the best discoveries in life are made when you least expect them.
Wherever you go this week, be open to an unexpected discovery. Who knows what you'd find!
