This is a place that’s been abuzz on local insta baddie accounts for the longest time. Have you already checked it out? La Foret is a semi pricey cafe that offers all your run of the mill coffee drinks and snack type foods, but also offers more ‘trendy’ options like green tea affogatos and stylized brunches. I recently had the chance to check it out with Evolution superstars Syd Wong and Shauny Molina, we all absolutely loved it. The first thing you’ll notice when you step into the place is the set up, there’s a reason why it’s such an instagram hot spot. One of the first words that come to mind? Aesthetic. With marble table tops, concrete flooring and an abundance of plant life throughout, it’s clear that this place has been feverishly researching their target audience. Hipsters. Or students. Or maybe hipster students. Regardless, when we stopped by there was an abundance of younger people who looked fairly professional with their shiny new laptops, mixed in with a sprinkle of business-y older people who appreciate a well made tea or coffee beverage.
We all opted for a beverage ourselves! Besides Syd because she’s crazy and doesn’t like coffee. But even if you don’t like coffee there’s a ton of other things to choose from! Tea, smoothies, juices, we hadn’t even gotten to the actual food part of the menu when we first looked over it and I was already impressed by the variety. There was a selection of small cafe snacks like muffins, but also full on brunches which I opted for because I was starved. It didn’t take long though for me to be completely full!… Though, of course, there was room for us to try some slices of cake. Because you know… There’s always room for cake. It was all delicious, and I’d say wSyd, Shauny and I would go back as soon as we could! If we weren’t already out there looking to try out new things and places. Have you been to La Foret before? What did you try there? And what new spot do you think us gal pals should try next?
