What it Tastes Like:
I’m normally one of those people who dumps several Splenda packets in my coffee. I have recently developed a taste for java, but it needs to be sweet. That’s why I was a bit skeptical when I tried this drink, formerly named The Cinderella on hebrews’ old menu. It’s a latte! Come on, I’m more of a mocha kind of gal. But I took a risk, and it did not disappoint. The espresso at hebrew’s has a rich, nutty flavor that shines through and gives the drink a delicious taste. And while the house-made cinnamon syrup adds some spice, the teensy bit of vanilla in the syrup makes this latte slightly sweet. Mixed with steamed milk, the drink becomes something that’s just sweet enough for me to enjoy (and not so sweet that it makes most espresso drinkers gag).
