Social Cafe Group + Food bloggers brunch at Sproutz restaurant.

Social Cafe Group connects influencers with brands. We collaborated with Sproutz restaurant in Sunny Isles beach, Florida.

A group of South Florida food bloggers connected over some mouth watering dishes, an Instagram growth session and networking.

We were treated to Sproutz, a restaurant that creates a health-conscious community by education and delicious delights. The best way to educate is through food; Sproutz provides fresh and delectable dishes that are full of natural benefits, flavors and nutrients.

There’s something for everyone to love and all of our foodies that attended had happy tummies and indulged in instagram worthy food (scroll down to see for yourself-and try not to drool too much). Take your “pic” of poke bowls, cauliflower pizza, organic açaí bowl, natural juices, smoothies, wraps, salads, protein plates and paninis. Gluten free and vegan options as well. Check out their full menu here.

Craft and Common

Orlando, your favorite coffee shop, Craft & Common, is now serving food and drinks!

Craft & Common has become an instant favorite for locals, and it has become a must have stop for tourists visiting downtown Orlando. Their menu has been revamped with an assortment of tasty items and treats like truffled popcorn, smoked salmon toast, and a cheese sampler, just to name a few. They have added new drinks, but they still have their specialty coffees like their painkiller.  The painkiller is a cold brew float with vanilla ice cream, cream of coconut, orange and nutmeg 🤤  If you’re a foodie like me and enjoy reading menus, check out their full menu here.

Let’s talk about the feels. I love the vibe, and the interior design is straight out of an Instagram Top Ten Cafe list. It’s bright, spacious and filled with succulents and potted plants defying gravity as they hang off walls and breathe some fresh 02 into your ozone. You can sip your coffee and get a shot of creativity amidst warm lights and decor that’s sure to make you more productive too. Before you get lost in the pics, share your favorite coffee shop(s) in the comments below.

Date Night Sushi: Koi Restaurant

Best sushi in New York

Looking for a delicious sushi restaurant in New York?

The baby daddy and I spent our anniversary in NYC where we went to Koi.  The restaurant may be a little hard to find since it’s located inside the Bryant Park Hotel and there is no actual sign outside of the building.  As usual, we were running late but the hostess was super nice and still seated us (it wasn’t packed since it was a Monday night)

We started off with the Koi crispy rice topped with spicy tuna. The rice cake wasn’t Continue reading
