Cars & Coffee San Clemente July 29th 2017
We were happy to finally make it out to the Cars and Coffee San Clemente this morning bright and early. We arrived at about 6:00 and shortly thereafter the cars started to pour in. The first thing we noticed? How it was entirely surrounded by picturesque hills. Also, (being the parking area for a newer outlet mall,) the place itself was clean and upscale. With it’s large white parking area, it was the perfect backdrop for showing off all the colorful automobiles. It was great to see many new faces. Plus there were a lot of folks and their vehicles from the now defunct C & C in Aliso Viejo.
Ruby’s was serving up hot coffee and yummy pastries and for some of us missing our Panera fix after losing Aliso Viejo, it’s to the left as you drive in. We weren’t sure if it was open or not, but it’s still good to know it’s there. On a personal note, my favorite car this time was the Fiat Multipla. Massimo and his brother used this vehicle (well not this one but one very much like it!) as a working truck when they were young and I love hearing the stories they tell about it.
I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking. However, on a last note, it was totally worth it to make the trip down here and we plan to do it again in the coming weeks.
