Tea for two?
If your idea of retail therapy involves wandering through a freshly decorated boutique with beautifully curated products and an outdoor space where you’ll be served gorgeous floral-centric coffees and confectionary, then you absolutely need to visit Morning Lavender. This female-owned and run space is a pastel dreamland with not one but three Insta-worthy flower walls.
Once you’ve browsed the whole boutiques and your arm a little tired from carrying all the bags filled with cute ceramics, mini bouquets, specialty teas, and other gorgeous goods, you can head to the cafe to get your caffeine fix. There’ll be things like iced lavender lattes with a splash of sea cream and a sprinkle of lavender! But while you might come for the coffees, you’ll return for the Rose Black Milk Tea filled with gooey boba.
Of course, on sunny SoCal days, frosé and flowers are a must!
If you want to switch things up or take a tea-time spread next to one of the O.C.’s incredible cliffside havens, then you won’t be disappointed by the trendy pink tea boxes. You’ll have to keep tabs on their social media though, as these treats are only offered for limited periods.
Once you’ve firmly established your floral fetish, you can take things to the next level with their cute purple food truck, which is available for hire and comes straight to your door.
Oh, and don’t forget to take the obligatory selfie in front of the stunning flower installations.
