Weekly Meal Plan & Collective Coffee Co.

Hello! After about a week straight of rainy days in South Carolina, the sun is finally shinning! I’m super excited!! Today, I’d like to share with you our weekly meal plan and a restaurant review of a newer coffee/food spot.

So, what’s on tap for this weeks eats? I food shop on Fridays, so that's where my weekly plan starts:



  • Wednesday: Burgers (beef for him, veggie for her), broccoli & fruit
  • Thursday: Vegetable soup with grilled cheese

What’s on your plan?

On Sunday morning, Josh, Kaylin & I had the opportunity to try out a newer restaurant in Mount Pleasant, Collective Coffee Co.


Collective Coffee is just beautiful inside:



Beyond beautiful, the restaurant offers delicious pour over coffees, fresh squeezed juices, and tasty dishes:

IMG_3913According to the owners, everything at The Collective is made to order, using organic components when possible, and most menu items are homemade.  You can check out the full menu here. Josh started with the fresh squeezed orange juice:

IMG_3914 I stole a sip. It was so yummy. I also let Kaylin have her first sip of juice, she liked it a lot (I don’t let Kaylin have juice because most are packed with sugar and artificial flavors/colors):


I, of course, tried out their coffee. Bold and so yum. I also was a big fan of their mugs:


When I saw the menu, I knew I had to try the parfait! It was made with vanilla bean yogurt, granola, fruit & honey:


It was amazing and so filling. Josh had the chorizo wrap which contained egg, black beans, queso fresco, pickled jalapenos, avocado, and cilantro. On the side were bagel chips:


   Gah! Everything was amazing! If you live here, or are in the area, please give collective coffee a go!

I'm so glad you reviewed this place because I saw it a week ago when I went to that froyo place next to it and was wondering if the coffee was any good and what the inside was like.

We have to meet there soon! Thank you for the amazing recommendation!

itzyskitchen said...

Yes! You should definitely give it a go! BTW- I love fresh berry and didn't realize thats where the Mount P location was!

Taryn said...

The owner actually bought my washer and dryer when I moved last - that's the only reason I knew it was there!

Amelia said...

Woah, that wrap is ginormous! Love the combos. The parfait looks luxurious. :) Their French toast also sounds fantastic!

Menu this week includes: burgers (last night), proscuitto with napa cabbage stir fry, grilled chicken salads, pea soup (our CSA gave us TOO much!) and possibly out.

I love that you do a little bit of his/hers in your meal planning - we totally do that too! The coffee house is stunning inside and everything looks delish! Too cute about Kay and her first juice - such a good mama! I always joke that I want my kids (when I have kids, lol) to think a cookie is a homemade granola bar...until they go to school of course and some kid lets them in on what a real cookie is, lol!

itzyskitchen said...

TOTALLY! I refuse to buy almost anything packaged (other than chobani & Annie's products :))

Jenn (eating bender) said...

Wow, I love the interior of Collective Coffee Co. And your eats look fantastic - there is nothing better than freshly squeezed orange juice at brunch, in my opinion. I also love your meal plan for this week. I still need to get myself in the habit of doing that, but I will say that we've been better lately about talking about possible meals for each week. Now it's just a matter of actually assigning and making a list. :)

Kelly said...

Looks awesome, I'll definitely have to check it out! Btw - I've taken your Body Attack class at ESAC a few times :)

itzyskitchen said...
