I snuck this photo in while all three were conversing. I am very sharp.
I had strong doubts of featuring the business on my blog for a long time. Despite all of her praise, Amy warned me that TreeHuggers is located in a shopping plaza filled with frontal parking and simulates the model of a sit-down restaurant with a waitress taking orders. (Not my idea of a neighborhood coffee shop.)
But ultimately, Amy and Devon persuaded me in other direction a few minutes after arriving. As they pointed out, TreeHuggers' menu specializes in more caffeinated beverages than any simple diner or restaurant, and on Saturday, we noticed people working on their laptops similar to what you'd see at a coffee shop. Most importantly, all four of us had a wild time eating and chatting at Treehuggers.

Instead, TreeHuggers sits across the street from a Burger King inside a soapbox-shaped building that shares space with a gym and a few other commercial tenants.
I try my best to consider the lifestyles of car-worshiping Americans, but I didn't see much of that audience eating at TreeHuggers that day anyway. It's as though TreeHuggers is grounded in some sort of ironic premise.
My dish was the right upper corner. Don't ask me what
Devon, Amy and Kate ordered. I failed to retrieve a
I mistakenly thought the dish I ordered was named after some sort of endangered monkey: a black bean chimichanga. (My expertise in ethnic cuisine never fails to impress.) Together with an iced coffee, I spent a $11 and change.
My love for Stevia in the raw is unmatched!
Atmosphere and Space: As the name suggests, TreeHuggers sports a very tropical atmosphere with its green colorful walls, light brown wooden furniture and a room divider that mirrors bamboo sticks. Green is also found on the upholstery, plates, menus and mugs.
Inside, TreeHuggers has seating for more than two a dozen people--but not enough for the crowd that overwhelmed the place near the end of our group's visit. (I imagine it gets a lot easier when the place opens up its fenced outdoor seating between the parking lot and building.)
Fifteen minutes later, this place was crazy busy.
