One of my ’20 for 2020′ goals (I’ll post the whole list in another post) is to go on a date with Lucas every week. So far, just about every week we’ve gone to our coffee shop. We live very close to Fairhaven, so it’s easy to go to our same favorites over and over again…so we’ve decided to go to every coffee shop in Bellingham this year (and boy…it’s a lot)
This weekend we went to Makeworth! I have seen a few Instagram posts of people in this beautiful place and I was excited to check it out myself.
Lucas is taking a break from coffee for a while, because the acidity hurts his stomach…and I don’t drink dairy, so I’ll admit our drink choices tend to be heavily amended. My favorite milk substitute is Almond milk, for flavor and calorie count… however! A lot of shops in Bellingham have stopped offering almond milk (for a lot of very good reasons that I definitely support) but I was super happy to see that Makeworth is still on the almond milk bandwagon.
I got a Merry Mint Mocha (with almond milk) from their seasonal menu, and Lucas got a Chai latte. DELICIOUS. The mocha was creamy and thick and had tiny candy cane pieces on top. Lucas loved his chai latte as well. It smelled heavenly and had gorgeous latte art, which is always fun. We also got some of their chocolate almond biscotti which was also delicious!
Makeworth also has a very curated little store area. They sell some mugs, made by a local artist, and a lot of little curios. It seems like a great place for local makers to showcase their work.
All in all, we have nothing bad or neutral to say about Makeworth. Delicious drinks, beautiful atmosphere. It’s a nice, big, open location with huge windows, letting in tons of light. The baristas are friendly and talented.
