Ceremony Coffee Roastery & Espresso Bar: Annapolis’ Best Kept Caf√© Secret

 

Time Cupsoul’s Instagram¬†already¬†gives away¬†a slight obsession with Ceremony Coffee Roasters¬†in Annapolis, Maryland. Alas, Instagram posts are not enough to truly represent what this coffee bar offers: enchantment.

In time cupsoul searching adventures, what has become increasingly evident is that a coffee shop affiliated with, or wholly containing a roastery, predicts good coffee. Though not the case 100% of the time, those that fit the description tend to embody a certain dedication to coffee excellence and ambiance. Again, not a rule, but a clue.

Ceremony Coffee Roastery & Espresso Bar in Annapolis does embody this dedication. I’ve frequented this location numerous times and each time am impressed with the quality of service, cleanliness, and liveliness so tangible in the space.

This time, the jewel isn’t set in a ring, it’s set for awe (and photographs) inside of a coffee mug. Please, let it “sparkle” and sip it slowly to appreciate its craft.

Da Da & Da//◊ď◊ź ◊ď◊ź ◊ē◊ď◊ź: French Lover’s Heaven in Tel Aviv

 

There is a deep attachment and love in my family for French culture — for not only the language but the country, fashion and the food. If there was a way that this post could be hidden from just my mom, who I want to surprise with this cafe, it would be done. Given that she may find it in her travel books regardless, it’s time to share¬†an absolutely excellent example of French food in Tel Aviv: Da Da & Da Cafe on Rothschild Boulevard.

Da Da & Da is part of the Institute Français here in TLV, and its location is impeccable. Not a far walk from Independence Hall and main attractions on Rothschild, this is an essential cafe to stop by when in the city.
