Wickenden Street…

…truly a garden of earthly delights (only the middle panel, though).

Places I went to today in order to not be in my un-air-conditioned apartment:

Home of the previously mentioned lavender-honey cupcake.

I highly recommend the Duck and Bunny. It’s so cute you could puke, plus there are delicious foods. To be honest, I like the lunch/dinner fare more than the pastry, but that could just be my tendency towards savory foods over sweet. I once sampled an onion tart that was sharing space with the cupcakes and it was heavenly. I find the cupcakes extremely flavorful, although the cake itself can be a bit dry at times.

Wink nudge.

This shop often contains a cuddly English Bulldog. Today it did not; however it did contain Ducky, former barista at Reflections, the coffee shop I frequented until it closed last year. When places I like close it makes me happy to see that the people who worked there are still gainfully employed.

I will trade you this $2.50 for that cup of coffee. Good exchange, no?

Coffee Exchange reminds me of my awesome former roommate Erika (sup Erika!) because she basically lived here for the summer we lived together. Coffee Exchange has all kinds of Fair Trade beans and is always packed, probably due to copious power outlets, air conditioning, and propensity to play Anthology 3.  I’m into it.

Coffee Exchange would also like to inform you:


P.S.: black beans, day two. Honestly, they don’t taste significantly different from yesterday. Still delicious. I shall keep you updated.
