I’ve blogged before about the Banana Espresso smoothies at Silver Lake Coffee before and how much they rule the planet. I even had one this afternoon. But when I went back to there again this evening with Jay they were out of bananas. No bananas means no banana espresso smoothies. CRAP! What’s a guy to do in a situation like that? Well here’s a short list of things that should you find yourself in the same banana shortage we did this evening that you can order instead and still be psyched on the coffee house goodness.
– Soy Chai Latte. This is Caryn’s current obsession and the people behind the counter there agree that the soy version is way better than the regular milk version. That’s what I opted for this evening and I wasn’t disappointed.
– Vanilla Soy Latte. This is my usual, and I go for the soy because of the whole vegan thing but I go there with people who don’t take the soy road and they are blown away as well. They just have some damn good coffee there.
– Ice Blended Vanilla Espresso. This is the choice on a hot day when the bananas are no where to be found. It’s what you think, vanilla, ice, and a couple of shots all blended together into a frozen dream drink. I don’t order this enough really.
To be honest, I’ve never had something bad there, and have never gone with someone who didn’t like whatever they ordered so I’m pretty sure you are safe with any of the options. Some dude in front of me today ordered an Oreo Smoothie which sounded damn good. I wonder if I can bring them in vegan oreos and get them to whip that one up special?
