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.


  1. Awww us Oregonians miss you too Miss Leah! You'll have to come over and join me at a coffee shop. We have a new one in town I think you'd like.

  2. Funny thing, I've developed a craving to visit Oregon someday, just from knowing people who've lived there, seeing pictures, reading books, etcetera.....
    I live in Wisconsin.
    Now you're totally making me want it even more:)
    That coffee shop sounds amazing! Lovely.

    p.s. I found you, quite randomly, through clicking "drinking coffee" in the Interests part of a blogger profile.
    Wonderful blog you have:)

  3. Awww Leah. Oregon misses you too. <3 Amber
