Celebrating the Flavor of Tuolumne County

Taste: to perceive or experience the flavor of. Flavor: an indication of the essential character of something.



I love chocolate. This love affair started before I was even one years old and began innocently enough with the taste of a single M & M.  From that moment, according to my mom and grandma, my favorite word was m ‘n m ‘n m ‘n mwhich I repeated, hand stretched out, enthusiastically and frequently. To this day, given the choice of fine Belgian chocolate or M & Ms I will enthusiastically choose the latter.

Another love I have is going to “coffee” with my friends. Predictably, I always add chocolate to the mix. Slowly sipping a mocha or hot chocolate while chatting and laughing and enjoying life with a friend~ well, it doesn’t get much better than that. 

My picks for fun places in Tuolumne County to go for “coffee” with friends:   

Starbucks: The atmosphere is fun and familiar and their drinks are consistently yummy.

Sonora Joes, Washington St., Sonora: I’ve only been a couple times but they have a great downtown coffee house feel.

Schnoogs, Mono Way, Sonora: Comfy and cozy. I love to settle into one of their big chairs with both hands cradling my coco or mocha.

Alicia’s Sugar Shack, Hwy 108, Long Barn: Super charming…and their chocolate scones are divine.

 Where do you go?? I’d love to know…
