Julianna and I have still been actively seeking out all of the best coffee shops in our area. This week we decided to try KRISP Fresh Living in Irvine, CA. I was originally drawn to KRISP by the succulents on the back wall that spell out their name and the brightness of the shop itself. The natural lighting that beams into the space is inviting, refreshing, and so suiting when paired with the name. KRISP offers a variety of smoothies, juices, fresh and healthy food, and of course, plenty of options to get your caffeine fix.
I gave their Nutella Madeline Latte a try and, again, the name couldn’t have described the coffee any better; it tasted exactly like a cookie with a hint of chocolate hazelnut. Julianna got their Blueberry Matcha Latte which she said was really good.
KRISP is located right next to TRADE which is an indoor/outdoor food mall that is a perfect spot to grab some food and take in some fresh air. They have plenty of options and plenty of seating.
We had the privilege of trying out Sweet Combforts, which is best known for their liege waffles on a stick. Sweet Combforts offers a sense of nostalgia, with their toppings being things favorably remembered from our childhoods like fruity pebbles, circus animal cookies, and Oreos (I mean, I still eat these foods now but you catch my vibe). They also have milkshakes made with non-dairy ice cream and vegan options to fit the lifestyles of anyone who is looking to go that route. ALSO. What I wish I had known before hand (I didn’t do my normal Instagram stalking before arriving) was that they have pineapple dole whip! I’ve only found soft serve dole whip in Southern California at Disneyland so anywhere else I can get it is an automatic win.
We got the Cookies & Dreams (Oreo cookie butter, Oreos, and white chocolate drizzle) and the Ya Mom’s! (circus animal cookie butter, circus animal cookies, almonds, and white chocolate drizzle). Both were amazing. The warm waffles are dense, filling, and have just the right amount of sweetness.
I will definitely be back to try more of Sweet Combforts creations.
Happy Adventuring, xo.
