Foodie Find: Bravo Coffee Bar
May 03, 2018 03:19PM
Wake up and smell the coffee at Bravo Coffee Bar. Recently opened on Sutter Street, the family-owned spot lures passersby in with the aroma of freshly ground java, which permeates the outside air. Though originally a coffee cart, Bravo now serves their pourovers—along with an array of teas—seven days a week at a brick-and-mortar. Hot or iced, customers can order their fresh-brewed joe with vanilla, chocolate, hazelnut, maple, or black walnut syrup—all made in-house. With the weather heating up, I decided to go with the Hazelnut Medium Roast Iced Coffee. Nothing says fresh more than seeing your coffee beans get ground and brewed right in front of your eyes, literally. Infused with hazelnut syrup and a dash of cream and topped with house-made whipped cream and a dusting of chopped hazelnuts, this iced coffee wasn’t only inviting to look at but put a pep in my step, too. Feeling refreshed and caffeinated, I couldn’t leave without indulging in a fresh-baked Vegan Coconut Chocolate Donut (flavors regularly rotate) that was as sweet as it sounds. Mixed with the cozy interior, friendly faces, and upbeat Indie rock music, Bravo Coffee Bar is the perfect spot for a morning or afternoon pick-me-up. 813 Sutter Street, Suite C, Folsom, 916-803-8742, bravocoffeebar.homesteadcloud.com.
