Lunch with the Chicks at Cafe de Coco

Several weeks ago a group of us chicks went out for a lunch. We never know how many of us will be attending; it's just who shows up, shows up and we have a splendid time. It started with the older gals but we expanded it to include anyone who wants to come. We go to several restaurants in the area choosing a different one each time while trying to find new and interesting places. Enter: Cafe de Coco.

It's a very small restaurant in the downtown part of our city but not just a restaurant. They have a "boutique" of some unique items and antiques they sell. It's really quite cute inside and they have divine sandwiches and salads and DESSERTS! I abstained of course.......

Lots of goodies and pretties for sale in here.

Five different little dining areas.

The girls that participated that day. Lorene in front with long dark hair. Joann with her back to the camera. Darlene on the left with back to the wall. Stacey looking down - probably at HER camera. She's a budding photographer!

Darling little aprons! And we all know how I feel about aprons. Squeeeeeeeeal....

I would love to have that candelabra on the top of that cabinet but couldn't see the price, which makes Love Bunny verrrrry happy.

Lovely cosmetics, creams, soaps and lotions.

Little totes for sale in exotic prints.

Sweet lamp and lampshade by our table. Most of the lighting was lamps by or near the table but there was a skylight in the entry/shop area. This is a small restaurant and shop.
More coming up in a few days.


  1. Ooooh! Can I come next time, please?

  2. It looks like you had a great time! The selection of handbags look lovely! I like places like that it makes the eating experience a more enjoyable one.

  3. Going out to lunch is definitely sweeter when there are pretty things to look at and buy. That's part of the appeal of the Cracker Barrel Restaurant.

    Looks like everyone had a good time.

  4. How fun! Looks like a great group! I sure miss you ladies....

  5. I am thinkin' that this would be a great time! Thank you for showing us around the darling little eatery. Is the food as good as the atmosphere?

  6. What a fun place to meet with your group of chicks! Happy Late Pink Saturday! We are having a giveaway. Please come for a visit.

  7. Whoo!! I'm looking forward to the next Lunch Bunch outing! I suppose I should set a date if no one else will.

    Budding photographer... ha!!


    P.S. I think I was checking my phone since my teenager was tending the rest of the Farmers!

  8. I should go there. But I will eat the desserts. :)

  9. Oh I love that. We have several neat places like that in town. Some really cute things.

  10. Hi, Connie,
    Cute restaurant and shop! I like the idea of lighting with lamps instead of overhead lights, much more cozy and personal. I love those aprons and what a great way to display them. I am glad you got to have a chick day with friends. Have a great week. Thank you for stopping by for a visit. Vicki

  11. What a fun blog you have! I will stop by again. I'm not a man so I can see it in all its pinkness.

  12. What a darling place and why do I live in the middle of a desert? But thank you for sharing your fun and yes the candelabra is wonderful.
