Ava's Roasteria, a Beaverton Cafe at Last!
I am so jealous of everybody who lives nearby Urban Grind or Sydney's. Being in South Beaverton makes those kid-friendly cafes a bit of a trek for me and my two girls. However, at last weekend's Beaverton's Farmer's Market, I noticed a new cafe was opening at the corner of SW Hall and SW 2nd Street in old town Beaverton (walking distance from the fountain library park).
It is called Ava's Roasteria. It has all the yummy coffee drinks plus pannini. While there is no children's toy section, there are comfortable couches inside. What made it nice for the girls was the outside patio, however. There's a small fake creek running down two sides of the patio. Although I prevented them from actually getting in the creek, they had a good time picking up rocks and throwing them in as they sipped their kids' iced chocolate.
I'm just so happy to have a cool alternative to Starbuck's within ten minutes drive!
