I’m starting a new series here on F&F showcasing seasonal gems right here in Richmond, VA. I happy to be starting this series now because fall flavors are to die for.
For my first RVA flavors spotlight, I chose one of my very favorite spots in all of Richmond: Sugar & Twine. This little shop is the perfect spot to relax & refresh with a cup of delicious coffee & a pastry or two. It’s a Sunday morning ritual for me on my way to church. I love to people watch, read Style Weekly, & listen to the juicy gossip just inches away from me in the next table over (you know you do it too…). This place is always buzzing with people, so good luck catching them without a line, but I promise it’s worth the wait! I can hardly walk past this place without picking up one of their cheddar biscuits and a chai latte (my personal favorites)!
When I heard via their Instagram that they had a fall drink out, I quickly asked my friend, Eri, to come with me to test it out. Let me tell you, you’re gonna love it!
Their fall drink this season is their Harvest Latte. The real treat about this drink is their special made in-house syrup that features actual pumpkin, cloves, cinnamon, & ginger. Now if that doesn’t scream fall, I don’t know what does! It’s just as delicious as it sounds, & if you haven’t tried it yet, go today!
They also have an assortment of fall inspired pastries that I’m sure are as equally delicious as they are beautiful. I decided to go with the maple pecan scone first, but I can’t wait to go back to try them all!
*For this coffee date, I wore almost exclusively Forever 21, which is not as normal for me as it used to be. This blouse (also mentioned here) is in a size XL, but I loved the blowy sleeves the larger size provided. I paired it with one of my new fall staples, my pink tweed mini skirt. I also wore an old pair of navy ballerinas, my white handbag, & a bold fall lip.*
