Life&Style: on two wheels

Four wheels move the body; two wheels move the soul

Came across a cool find in Sonoma, California that had nothing to do with wine. I was on the lookout for a coffee shop.scooter3scooter6

 Something  reminded me of driving along for miles on a very long stretch of road with nothing in sight except for dirt in Marfa, Texas.  At the time, my husband who was driving the VW Camper casually said “I think there was a Prada store back there.”  Me, almost asleep in the back seat: “Whooah…go back, go back – just to make sure it’s not a mirage you’re seeing.”  It wasn’t.

So you can imagine my interest and surprise to discover just at the very moment I wanted a cup of coffee and some scooters (after some wine tasting in Sonoma) a café pitstop to end all pitstops.

And again; a drive-by which happened so fast that I had to say “whooaa…what was that back there?  It looked like a really cool vintage scooter shop and I caught signage for coffee…(I have a sharp eye for certain things if I’m not sleeping) go back, go back.”

And there it was…scooter heaven with a latte on the side.

It’s everything I was looking for in a bike shop/café and to top it all off they serve you breakfast right there while you wait for repairs.  You can buy vintage vespas…and I found the helmet I was looking for.  A nice rare find with excellent coffee.scooter2
