since i moved here in 2009 i have to admit if im in long beach and not at the home/office i am on the beach playing volleyball. in an effort to try to explore long beach more i am starting a new column with things from long beach – it may be a slow start, but hopefully will become a weekly column soon enough! first up is lord windsor roasters! when i first heard about this place i was really excited to try it out. although i don't hang around long beach much i know we don't have anything like lord windsor roasters currently.
the space is pretty simplistic and minimal and definitely all about the coffee, with a menu selection of about ten items only available in one size. they carry a few assorted pastries from scratched but i skipped on the pastries and ordered a mocha. it was the perfect blend of coffee and chocolate and just the right sweetness, definitely will be back for more. i do want to note they are going through a bit of growing pains and had some fruit flys hanging out but hopefully they've found themselves a new home!
