On the menu: toffee apple, salted almond custard with caramel and blood oranges, salty honey walnut, vanilla sugar buttermilk, and the off-the-menu chocolate pumpkin (they’ve had requests for it, so they’re doing it!).

Did you know Wednesday is Pozole Day at ~MIJITA~? Perfect lousy weather for you to track it down this week; it’s quite popular, so come early before they sell out.

A full selection of Blue Bottle Coffees and cookies will also be available. 12pm-2:30pm.
