February is all about sharing the LOVE, and this month I am sharing all of my Auburn Favorites right here in February Favorites! I have you covered from my favorite coffee stand to go antique hunting, so read on and discover your new favorites!
Food and Drink
Coffee Stand – There is nothing like heading to grab a coffee, and seeing smiling faces there to greet you and take your order. Huxdotter Coffee recently opened their newest location right here in Auburn off HWY 18 (and right around the corner from my house 😉 Not only is their coffee delicious, and energy drinks so good, but they carry Macrina Bakery pastries…enough said!
Burger Joint – If you are looking for the best burger in town, Frugals is the place! Their unique double drive-thru concept moves you thru quickly, and you will be greeted by the nicest staff and a delicious burger…not to mention GREAT prices!
Wine Bar – One of my favorite places for a date night or to meet the girls for a glass of wine is Vinifera Wine Bar & Bistro. They have delicious food, and you can listen to live music every Wednesday and Friday nights!
Craft Beer – Need to fill up that growler or looking to find a new craft beer or two? Stop in to CRFT Beers in Auburn and enjoy a glass in-house or order that keg for your next party!
Breakfast – Hands down the best breakfast in Auburn is at Sun Break Cafe! They are family-owned and serving amazing food since 1982. Make sure to check their hours before you head down!
Lunch – Zola’s Cafe, one of my favorite local cafes! We have ordered here for work lunches, and its a great place to meet a friend! Soups, salads, paninis, and more…there is something for everyone on the menu!
Dinner – Athen’s Pizza is an Auburn institution. Serving our community since 1980, they suffered a huge loss when a building fire took their restaurant. Athens is in the process of rebuilding, and has been hosting take and bake grinder and pasta events until their re-opening! You can get all the details by following them on Facebook!
Spray Tan – Sometimes you just need a little bit of color before that next vacation or big event…or just because there’s something about a tan that just makes you feel GOOD! I love heading to Desert Sun for a great spray tan. I usually get the “clear 1” and it is the percent light bronze glow!
Beauty – There is nothing I love more than strolling the beauty aisles of Ulta at the Outlet Collection! I usually walk in for dry shampoo and leave with a new lip gloss, eyeshadow palette, and who knows what else! If you are in need of makeup tips, their staff is always so friendly and ready to help!
Antique hunting – If you love finding antique treasures and the thrill of the hunt, you must visit Antique Marketplace! Hosting over 80 antique dealers, you will get lost in the nostalgia!
Thrift Store – “The Thrift Store & More has a dealer consignment area featuring antiques, jewelry, specialty items, and other collectible treasures. All proceeds benefit the lost and abandoned animals at the AVHS shelter as well as the programs provided by the Auburn Valley Humane Society.”
If you are looking for something fun to do with your 3-13 year old, son, daughter, niece, nephew or grandchild, Auburn’s popular Daddy Daughter Princess Ball and Ladies and Lil Gents events will be happening in March. What a fun way to spend a fun night together! Head to the Explore Auburn website for all the details!
