Pretty Little Lattes (Intelligentsia & Urth Caffe)

I guess the barista is your not-so-secret admirer.

Pumpkin stuff aside, I am not much of a coffee drinker. In fact, both of these lattes belonged to other people. But I love aesthetically pleasing latte foam art. (How do they DO that?) So here are two pictures, old and new.

The first picture (above) is from Intelligentsia in Silver Lake. I think it was December 27, 2008. (Yeah, I’m creepy about remembering things.) My cousin Sarah was visiting from Philadelphia, and we picked up this cappuccino before we headed down to Orange County.

The next drink is from Urth Caffe on Melrose. Cole ordered it last night. I think it was a… Spanish honey latte?

Nice to leaf you.

We tried to use a spoon to turn Cole’s leaf into a heart, but it was surprisingly dense/viscous, and we just kinda messed it up. (Leave these things to the experts!)

Before the broken heart, Cole was fretting that he didn’t want to drink his coffee, lest he mess up the pretty leaf.

That’s the thing about food art. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.

But if you’re ME, you can snap your pictures without having to order any coffee! Thanks, friends.

(I bet you thought this post was going to talk about “Pretty Little Liars.” Fooled ya!) (I’ve never seen an episode, but I’ve heard good things.)
