I've been missing Oregon lately. I think some of the best times I ever had there were of sliding down 8th street hill and building snowmen in the winter.
Today, I was looking through my GPS and had selected a specific coffee shop to stop at before continuing on to my next high school. I was unable to find the one I selected. Grumpily, I turned around hoping to find a little kiosk somewhere to satisfy my craving. Then: Serendipity.
Serendipity means to make a positive discovery by accident. Serendipitously, I found Serendipity, the coffee shop, in Dickinson. I walked in and fell in love. They serve delicious wraps, too. It's located on the corner of Dickinson State University's campus.
I felt like I was in Oregon again. The interior has bold, basic colors and there's plenty of seating. A large menu for food and coffee is located at the front counter, and coffee-related art adorns the walls.
I Googled it. http://www.serendipitycoffeehouse.com/ is the link for the website. Come to find out, the coffee shop was inspired by a local family's time spent in Oregon. They loved Oregon coffee shops so much, they wanted to bring that quality back to Dickinson, where they are originally from.
In the meantime, I feel like I am home, thanks to Serendipity.
