It’s National Burrito Day. No joke.
Here are a few places (or not) to grab one today. 

Community Cup

A locally owned and operated coffeehouse selling locally sourced products with a portion of proceeds going to local nonprofits. The definition of Community.

Of course, the shop has drip coffee, cold brew coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, and a variety of teas, but get adventurous and try the Carmalized Peanut + Brownie Latte, Sweet Cookie Latte, or the Gluten-Free Vanilla Chai Cookies. And Community Cup is the only shop in Cumming with Nitro Cold Brew.

Where:  125 Tribble Gap Rd suite 103, Cumming, GA 30040 

Contact: 470-297-5569,

OK, April Fools … Community Cup doesn’t sell burritos, but there’s a place right next door that does. Keep scrolling.
