In a series of posts tagged as "Favorite Finds", we want to share with you some of our favorite hangouts and experiences–proof that we do get out from behind our screens. (¬‿¬)

The moment you walk thru the doors of Funnel Mill you step into a zen den. Curtains carve out a section of the cafe for a quieter space. Talking on cellphones are not allowed here. There are glass displays of various teapots and coffee makers and artwork that reminds you of a traveler who brought back artifacts from a different country.


All of these maybe helped but maybe not helped the wonderful taste of the vanilla latte, which was grinded out of actual vanilla beans and not of vanilla powder. This vanilla latte is one of the most memorable lattes I have ever tasted and I will definitely return for another.
