La Mesa Grande
La Mesa Grande is a great place to stop in for cup of coffee, pick up a loaf of bread, some sconces, a few yummy croissants and or simply have a sandwich either made to eat there or to go. Owners Fernando and Robin Echeverria opened this charming little spot about 1 1/2 years ago and the decor has really evolved. It is cozy, inviting and the colors and furnishings are just great.
Besides having delicious baked goods, the best thing about it is that I can take a tray from my kitchen, walk out the front door of my house and walk less than half a block and there I am at the counter ordering lattes, hot chocolates and fresh orange juices to go plus a few croissants. How spoiled can a girl get? Buen Provecho.
