One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning by myself (mommy “me” time) in Laguna Beach is grabbing a coffee and picking up fresh flowers in the Lumberyard Mall. It’s conveniently located on Forest Avenue in the heart of downtown Laguna. There are little shops, a few eateries, art galleries and boutiques.
My go to coffee shop in town is The Grove on Forest. I’ll usually grab a quick coffee and then hang out outside and people watch if it’s nice out. Other times I will grab my computer and hang out inside the coffee shop for a bit and get some work done. The ambiance is modern and the music is great. I always tend to SoundHound a few songs while I’m there. I love discovering new music and this is the place to learn some new tunes. The baristas are all very nice and personable.
Another place I love to visit on Saturday mornings is The Flower Stand. The owner Katie is the sweetest and is so great at what she does. I love to see all the new blooms she has each weekend. I’m not very good at creating floral arrangements and so I typically ask her if she can put a bouquet together for me with what she’s loving at the moment. OF COURSE, she always comes up with a perfect arrangement and the flowers just smell AMAZING in our home all week. I just love this little shop.
So Mamas, if you’re ever in Laguna Beach and needing an hour or two to yourself, head on over to the Lumberyard Mall in downtown Laguna Beach. Grab a coffee, explore the shops, and pick up a bouquet for the road!
