Last week, I tried the Bean Counter Cafe at Colonial Gardens here in Blue Springs! All I can say is...whoa! If you have not been there, it's time to call up your bestie and go check out this coffee house! It is in the middle of Colonial Gardens, with large windows to see the beauty right outside. I went while it was snowing outside, so the shrubbery mixed with the snow made it the perfect winter wonderland to sip my latte and have a turkey melt with the most delicious mango salsa. I hear it's just as beautiful, if not more beautiful, in the summer with an array of color out the window with the beautiful flowers growing and the lush greenery that surrounds you. So get on the phone and schedule that lunch date! You won't regret it!
