Sweets anyone?

Posted by: Kent Hopkins In: Uncategorized

Sure, when you come by City Loft and City Java & News you get a top-notch, boutique hotel experience in the heart of downtown Beaufort.

Here at City Loft you can indulge all of your needs, particularly those for rest and relaxation.

And downstairs we have you covered for coffee and lunch. But what about that sweet tooth?

Well we’re lucky enough to have Sweet Vivi’s Cookies & Cupcakes bake up some of her special treats for us almost every day. Don’t take our word on how delicious they are, head on over to her Facebook page to grab a quick look.

Adding Sweet Vivi to what we offer makes City Loft is just another example of what makes us the most unique place to stay in Beaufort SC.

It’s just about that time again; the annual Beaufort Water Festival is right around the corner.

We can’t wait to see all of our friends who come into town for the week to celebrate with us.

If you haven’t, yet made plans for where you’re going to stay we’re offering a 20% discount if you book a 3 night or more stay with us during Water Festival. The offer is good July 15 through July 24.

Check out our specials website for that deal and others.

And don’t forget to check out City Java & News’ Facebook page as we have a feeling it will be running some Water Festival specials some time soon.

About a week back we offered up a $9 gift card to our Facebook fans to commemorate what felt like the 100th straight day of 90 degree temperatures. In order to win you had to post on our wall why you love City Java & News.

The responses were fast and furious, and we wanted to share a few with you:

“Because it is the only place in Beaufort that takes coffee as seriously as I do.” – Josefina Blanc

“Because they always make me feel like I am getting my coffee at home.” – Ken Page

“Why I love City Java? Because when I ordered a frozen coffee, I noticed my ice cubes were made from coffee. PURE GENIUS!” – Hollie Wargo

Our winning post came from Emmie Hamm Dilsaver who said:

I love City Java because it satisfies all of my senses:
SMELL: Great aromas from the coffees and yummies!
TOUCH: Always feels great in City Java no matter what time of the year – a hot coffee in the winter and an iced drink in the summer & always climate controlled to perfection!
HEAR: I love the sounds of the coffee machines and the happy people exchanging hellos – and the hiss of the whipped cream going on top of my iced carmello machiatto….
SIGHT: There are always neat new things in there to see – decorated sweets, new products the specials!
TASTE: I love the taste of the food, sweets and especially my iced carmello machiatto that are slight addicting!

If you’re not yet a fan of our http://www.facebook.com/CityJava, because we’ll be running more promos like this in the future. And thank you to all who love City Java!
