Aloha Grinds

Aloha Grinds is a very special place for me.  Not only do they have AMAZING coffee, smoothies, bubble tea, breakfast and barbecue, but it's where I met boyfriend (I know, I know. He's fiance now, but I just hate that word!)!

The menus
How did it happen? I moved into a new neighborhood, Bay Ridge, after my apartment got robbed.  Luckily, it was only a 15 minute commute to work.  Since I had some extra time in the mornings, I wanted to find somewhere to get coffee beforehand.  That's when I found Aloha Grinds!  It had a refreshing Hawaiian theme, great music, and most importantly, a pretty cute owner.

I would go in a couple of a times per week and hope to see him.  We talked about a mutual love for sushi, sake, karaoke, and The Office.  We were immediately enamored with each other.  After a month (he says) or three (I say), he finally asked me out.  The rest is history.

If you're ever in Brooklyn, be sure to stop by and say Aloha! :)
