Coffee- Big Sur Mobile Cafe, Della Moran
Assorted Biscotti & Compost Cookies!
*  The compost cookies are great cause it's a chewy, crispy, fluffy cookie, then when you look closer; you see broken up bits of pretzels, potato chips, other cookies, maybe stuff you haven't seen since you were a kid. And there's coffee grounds. Every cookie is it's own delicious little mess, and the salty bits are the best.
