As a freelance writer, I don't dread Mondays the way others do. In fact, I usually look forward to Mondays. It's my day to sit down with a cup of coffee and organize my work for the week.
There's another reason I look forward to Mondays: the breakfast quesadilla at Java Joe's.
Occasionally, I'll have a breakfast burrito if I find myself there on any day beside Monday. And for a treat I haven't encountered in other Albuquerque coffee shops, I get an espresso soda. Espresso, club soda, and a choice of flavor. Almond and vanilla work well but I think coconut might be my favorite. Top with whipped cream and it's refreshing while giving you a nice caffeine boost.
So you can guess where I was this morning. I had a pad of paper, my laptop, a mug of coffee, and a green chile breakfast quesadilla to get Monday started on the right note.
The self-serve bottomless mugs of coffee aren't a bad way to increase productivity either.
