thomsen's and vines
i love finding new favorite spots in alameda. i keep thinking i've seen all the cool stuff in alameda, but not so, luckily. this morning i discovered thomsen's garden center/vines cafe run by husband (in the cafe upstairs) and wife (in garden center downstairs). they've been there over 30 years and the place is super charming, with nooks with benches and surprises all over the cafe—birds flying above the molding, patterned floor, stained glass windows. i had to have a fika and buy a couple of plants, which i plan to hang stephanie style.
