They have plenty of great drinks and some of the best lattes in town, including some with truly artistic designs on top.

Farmacy Cafe

Found in the lobby of the boutique Padre Hotel, Farmacy Cafe is another great coffee spot in Bakersfield. The cafe is known for giving customers that much needed caffeine boost with their popular espresso drinks.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
