carpenteria, a quaint beach town, is a favorite of mine because of the fond memories made staying with my best friend jen at her family's condo and also because it's filled with so many hidden gems, like the lucky llama coffee house that offers really delicious acaí bowls topped to the brim with fresh fruit, perfect for spring + summer.

on the outdoor patio they had this adorable play table set up for the littles. jace loved playing with those tiny farm animals!
such a great spot to just relax and reflect or catch up and mingle with a friend. or in my case, bring your family along and have your kiddo entertained by the cutest table of toys for endless entertainment. forego coloring menus, this place knows what's up ;)
