There is this special little nook in my dining room that gives me the warm fuzzies every morning. My cafe station is where I make the foamiest cup of decaf latte to start the day. I don’t drink coffee to wake me up, I drink it for the taste and experience. My sister who takes her coffee black calls me a ‘fake’ coffee drinker. Whatever you want to label me, I loveee me a frothy, creamy cup of decaf cappuccino!
After creating my Tea Space (which is also in the dining room as seen HERE); I craved a zenful place for preparing my daily morning cup of joe. I wanted a cozy, white (shocker) and organized space where I can easily access the cappuccino machine, coffee tins, mugs and baked goodies.
All in the little details. I’m a huge fan of using decorative trays to help organize all the knickknacks.

My kids love love bagels, so we always have them around. I used a cake stand with a lid cover to store them. Doesn’t hurt that they are pretty on the eyes!
You can’t have a cafe station without macarons and meringues. Yum. My kids devour these like there’s no tomorrow.
We used an old vintage dresser for the station. This time, we didn’t repaint it but did give it new glass/brass knobs from Anthropologie.
I’m obsessed with Cafe Du Monde coffee. I make Vietnamese coffee with this brand. I don’t make it often because it’s brewed using a French drip filter which takes a little longer than whipping something up with my cappuccino machine. I haven’t found the decaf version of it yet although I know it exists.
If you’re a coffee lover, I hope this has inspired you to create a little cafe sanctuary of your own!
