As part of an on going series, We’ll be featuring our vendors and their amazing qualities and reasons to go and pay them a visit.
The Coral Gables Art Cinema first opened in October 2010 to offer Miami a much needed art house theater that offered first run regional premieres of independent and international features. Admission to the theater is $11.50 for adults and $9.50 for students and seniors. The theater is an intimate yet spacious at 141 seats.
The Cinema Cafe has a variety of snacks to please all palettes, from health conscious options like veggie snacks and Om Nom Nom Cookies to classic favorites like popcorn, soda and a variety of chocolates.
Several special events and screenings are held on a monthly basis. Every second Saturday and Sunday they host ‘Family Day.’ For the first screening of the day the cinema will show a film to cater to all ages at a discounted price with tickets for children costing $6.50 (includes a free popcorn) and adults $7.50.
Opening Night Film Parties are also a great way to see the premiere of a new film. For only $20-$25, you will receive admission to the film and gain entrance to the reception with light bites and an open bar featuring drinks from Bacardi. This is a great way to experience the film and change up those Friday night plans!
My name is Taylor and I am currently a junior in high school. To make this sound a little less like an online dating profile, I think I’ll quickly sum up some facts about me.
I spend most of my weekends watching TV shows on Netflix (my latest obsession is Breaking Bad). If I could only drink one thing for the rest of my life, it would be lemonade. And lastly, music is one of the ways to my heart. My music taste ranges from Arctic Monkeys to Sara Bareilles.
Since I’ve started my time at Om Nom Nom Cookies as an intern, I’ve had the pleasure of trying the Chocolate Snickerdoodle and Orange-Zested Chocolate Chip cookies. I’ve never heard of someone adding orange to a regular chocolate chip cookie, and was excited to find out what the mix of the two flavors would result in! As I bit into the cookie, I could instantly taste the orange zest. The flavor was quite overwhelming as the chocolate and orange combined to create something absolutely delightful.
Truth be told, I was not a major cookie fan before I started working at Om Nom Nom. They just weren’t my thing. Whenever my sister made them they were hard, and she iced them with the packaged Betty Crocker icing from the grocery store. Basically, they weren’t very good.
I was more a fan of cupcakes; they were cute little cakes that combined softness and deliciousness. Cookies were just…gross. But then I started my job here, and with so many cookies surrounding me it’s hard not to sneak one. Om Nom Nom cookies are definitely not the ones that my sister made; they’re so much better. They’re soft, not iced, and not found in the local grocery store.
Om Nom Nom has changed my perspective on the world of cookies, and now I enjoy the circular treats more than anything else.
