While I’m home and if you’re looking for me, you’ll most likely find me at the newest location of Jumping Bean coffee shop, in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Mainly people watching, and not-so-secretly taking photos of the coffee shop.
When I was home in October/November of last year, they opened a new location on Elizabeth Avenue (which is the one I most frequent). I was running out of time to visit, so I saved it for my Christmas vacation visit, and I’ve been in there so often, I think I used up all their sugar-free vanilla syrup in my 20oz lattes I’ve been ordering.
I guess that’s why I go back almost every day. I asked one of the girls working there the other day, what exactly they use for their espresso. I’ve been scouring California for amazing lattes, but good ol’ Newfoundland has got it. Better move home out of it ;)
I find that whenever I whip out my cell phone (note, that it’s a BlackBerry, so it’s not even a huge camera by any sorts) people in St. John’s are 100% aware of their surroundings 100% off the time. And they stared, and wouldn’t look away. It made for awkward photo taking around when I was exploring my own home-town, but it didn’t stop me from snappnig away photos inside Jumping Bean, or out downtown when I wa shopping with my sister-in-law.
Elizabeth Avenue isn’t their only location, they’re spread out everywhere in St. John’s, and after creepin’ them on Twitter, I found out that they sell K-Cups at Sobeys, even in Nova Scotia! Haha.
