My birthday was drawing near and I was planning on paying a visit to Rodeo Drive to look for a present. While I was out and about shopping at Nordstrom’s and I had run into one of the sales reps for Chanel at The Grove. We ended up chatting for hours about makeup and food. She recommended that I pay a visit to the Nespresso store in Beverly Hills. She also mentioned that most of the Nspresso stores were at Bloomingdale’s but this particular cafe’ was a stand alone store. I am a coffee lover. I was so excited I decided to pay a visit.

As you arrive there is free parking across the street for two hours so you have time to eat and shop around. When I approached the hostess there was only one other person standing in line so I got called rather quickly. The hostess mentioned that the bar was the only available seating at the moment and that I would have to wait 20 mins for another seating area. I told her I didn’t mind sitting at the bar.
The ambiance at Nespresso is very posh and sophisticated. It gives off that artsy luxurious feel. I felt like I was back in Europe.
My waitress was such a sweet heart. She even recommend what to get on the menu because I told her I was a vegetarian (pescatarian to be specific). I decided to get the broccoli Quiche and the Chocolate Coconut Mocha Frappaccino. OMG! They were both amazing. It was so delicious I decided to save some to take home for later. Nespresso knows how to add the finishing touches to your meal. They gave me a piece of chocolate to go with my coffee.
I noticed that Nespresso also sells their coffee machines in the store. They even have assorted coffee pods that you can “grab and go” for you personal espresso maker at home. I enjoyed their coffee so much that I will definitely be buying a Nespresso machine for christmas.
After everything was said and done the bill was reasonably low. I really enjoyed myself. I will be visiting again soon!
