Morning Glory, Grosse Pointe

I feel like I haven’t blogged in absolute ages!

Last week I was feeling a bit under the weather and when I wasn’t running back and forth between errands and work, all I wanted to do was curl up in bed.

I’m back now though and am finally ready to share with you my very favorite coffee spot.

I’ve mentioned Morning Glory a few times but haven’t given you a full look at it.

Well, better latte than never!

The outside porch is open in the summer, letting you sit at metal tables, an iced coffee in one hand, croissant in the other, surrounded by marble statues (making you feel like you’re in a French villa) with the sun streaming in as you people watch.

In the winter, the patio becomes enclosed and you can sit out there with a warm mug between your hands and a cozy, roaring fire warming your toes.

The inside is pretty spectacular too.

My favorite spot is right up next to the fireplace . . .

With this view.

Yes. I have finally found a place that loves elephants just as much as me!

You should know by now that I love a place that never leaves you trying to find something to look at or talk about.

I also love any place that lets me bring the wolf along.

Morning Glory meets both of those requirements and has really good coffee and scones AND has elephants everywhere. I honestly can’t espresso just how much I love it.

Tell me, can you think of a better place to pass a morning?

You’ll leave rejuvenated, awake, happy (elephants have that effect on people) and ready to live la vida mocha!

Also, officially started a Wanderer and Wolf Instagram! Check it out here.
