You’ve seen the many pictures on my Instagram, but I wouldn’t be letting you all in on the not-so-secret source of my happiness every Sunday if I didn’t write a blog about it, so here it goes!
Wide Eyes Open Palms is a pop-up coffee shop at various farmers markets in Long Beach, most notably, the Alamitos Bay Farmers Market on Sundays. Since it is basically in my backyard, I’m there almost weekly, and when I’m not, my Sundays are not as bright. First of all, they change their delicious offerings weekly, so there is always something new to try. Second, the gals greet you with big grins, cheery music, and grab-and-go pastries as soon as you get to the window. Third, everyone walking by you will ask where you got your food from, and for good reason! Their toasts, coffee options, teas, scones, cookies, and everything else are always delicious, it just depends on what type of flavors strike your fancy.
Below are some of my favorites so far, but I know that each week could hold a new go-to! If you couldn’t tell, I really like their Rosemary Latte. Pro tip: If they run out, go for the Cardamom Latte.
