Guest Post // Okinawa Cafe Adventuring

Today I have a very special adventuring guest post from Laura of Inspiration.Sparks! Enjoy!
Hello! I'm Laura and I blog over at Inspiration.Sparks, where I share all about my expat life in the little island of Okinawa, Japan. A little over a year ago, my husband who's a Marine got orders here and ever since the day we flew in, we have fallen in love with this place. Over at Inspiration.Sparks you'll find tons of adventure posts, bits of life with my lovely husband, as well as some little inspiration here and there, you know, to spice things up. When I started sponsoring Jess, she had an idea for me to write a post as a spin of her series East vs. West with Little City Adventures, have me feature my favorite lunch spot. It's taken me a while to write this post but today I wanted to share with you my favorite cafĂ© on the island, Cactus Eatrip.
This place is great for coming with a big group of friends, lounging around and chatting. They always have great music playing and a unique, relaxing atmosphere. It is also a great place for a brunch date with your love. 

I joined a Facebook Group before getting here and they had a meet-up a couple of weeks after we landed. This was the first place I visited on the island and, oh my, was it a great introduction! My usual order is the Avocado Tomato in a Cranberry Bagel and of course the infamous Oreo Bagel with Oreo Cream Cheese that you see pictured above. My husband on the other hand, orders a Crystal Sugar Bagel with Raspberry Cream Cheese and the Oreo Bagel of course. I've never gotten a good picture of the bagels because I always devour them before the thought comes to mind.

I wish this place was closer to us because it is a 40 minute drive from our house with no traffic. But thankfully, they have recently opened a smaller establishment on the Seawall called Little Cactus, which is a 20-25 min drive from us, not really that much closer, but it works. You can also buy your bagel to go and enjoy the scenic view as you walk along the Seawall.

Thank you so much Jess for letting me share this awesome little gem with your readers!
