4 Ways to Celebrate National Coffee Day

September 16th, 2016

No morning is truly complete until you’ve enjoyed a cup of freshly brewed coffee. That cup of coffee is especially important on National Coffee Day, which is celebrated on September 29th. Whether you prefer to drink coffee in the comfort of your Foster City apartment or at a local coffee shop, you’ll have no trouble finding a fun way to celebrate this special day. Consider adding one of the following destinations to your itinerary on National Coffee Day:

4 Things to Do on National Coffee Day

  • Stop by See U. The perfect spot to relax with coffee and a good book, See U aims to inspire the coffee lovers of Foster City. The cafe is well known as the regular meeting place for the Silicon Valley Women Federation. Whether you’re involved in this influential nonprofit or simply want some caffeine, you’ll enjoy the neighborly feel that infuses every nook and cranny in this welcoming coffee house.
  • Hit up Penelope’s Coffee and Tea. A local favorite, Penelope’s Coffee and Tea is the perfect spot to grab your morning cup of Joe. While hot coffee is always welcome, many of the regulars at Penelope’s favor the coffee shop’s delicious iced coffee. While you’re grabbing iced coffee, be sure to pick up a pound of coffee to take home. Penelope’s also offers a variety of breakfast burritos and Greek pastries.
  • Enjoy breakfast and coffee at the Century Centre Cafe. If a cup of coffee on its own isn’t good enough for you, you’ll prefer a visit to the Century Centre Cafe, which offers delicious coffee along with a variety of affordable breakfast options. Whether you order a pastry or an omelet, you’ll be satisfied with both the quality of the food and the ambience at this welcoming cafe.
  • Head to Mollie Stone’s Markets to buy organic coffee beans. If you prefer to brew your coffee at home, you’re in luck — you can find some of the best coffee in California at the Mollie Stone’s in nearby San Mateo. The store also stocks excellent coffee creamers and stevia that you can use as a healthy sweetener. Grab all of the things you need to make a wonderful cup of coffee, and then enjoy in peace in the comfort of your apartment.

The only thing better than drinking a good cup of coffee at Foster City’s finest cafes is enjoying it in a beautiful apartment. That’s exactly what we’re able to provide at The Plaza. Reach out today to learn more about our floor plans and amenities.
