At around 10:00 p.m. today, in need of a study break and a warm drink, I embarked on a ten-minute walk from Pomona’s south campus to Scripps College. I was in search of hot chocolate, and where else should I get it, other than The Motley Coffeehouse?
Referred to simply as The Motley, the coffeehouse is a student-run, non-profit, cute little place, just like a quaint coffeehouse you can find at The Village. The real plus is that it takes flex, and it helps out a fellow Claremont College.
I enjoy walking all the way uphill to Scripps to treat myself to a cup of hot chocolate once in a while. This is the only real thing on the menu I’m familiar with. The hot chocolate comes in three flavors: regular, Mexican, and white.
The Motley is just one of the nice, hidden places of the 5Cs that I frequent.
With paper cup in hand, after my drink is ready, I normally walk to Malott to avoid the small crowd that is in The Motley. It’s closed at this time, so I sit right outside it, and I typically phone a friend to chat.
Today, I called a high-school friend who goes to Scripps, and she was studying in a room right above Malott. I went to visit her and her friends while they were doing math.
After a bit, she had to leave. My roommate asked me to get some hot chocolate for him, also, so I returned to The Motley and got him a regular one, and I helped myself to a bar of dark chocolate.
And, after my trips to The Motley, I head over to Pomona snack. Today there was flan.
