Sofra Bakery

Wednesday, June 2, 2010

Sofra Bakery One Belmont Street, Cambridge, MA 02138 was recommended to me by a new twitter friend, Citizen Taco. Thank You! Thank You! I am in love with this Middle Eastern-ish bakery. While enough is familiar in the display of perfect looking cakes, pastries, and buns, there are Middle Eastern twists […]

Breadbox Cafe and Two Minute Salmon Salad

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Finally! We moved, but it’s not all smooth sailing yet. We’re living out of boxes and we don’t have a kitchen yet. While our perfect kitchen is being built (which we will be talking about soon), I’m going to have to get crafty. I do have many plug-in appliances (rice cooker, toaster oven, panini press, […]

Porto’s Bakery

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

It’s been several decades now since
Porto’s Bakery Location 315 , Glendale, CA 91203 started up.  Originally in a house in Cuba, then in Los Angeles, and now with two locations and over 20,000 sq. ft. of work space, Porto’s is rocking.  And it’s a good thing, too; because when FoodMayhem […]

Brunch at Gottino

Sunday, August 23, 2009

Thanks for meeting me at
Gottino 52 Greenwich Avenue, New York, NY 10011. Sit down and have a cup of coffee ($3) with me. The coffee here is great by the way. Would you like a pastry? Do you have time for a meal? Really? OK! There’s so much I want you […]

Brunch at Macondo

Monday, July 20, 2009

We were driving on East Houston, heading for the Williamsburg bridge, when we spotted
Macondo 157 East Houston Street, New York, NY 10002. I was drawn in by the laid back, yet hip feel of the place so we decided on a spontaneous brunch there. I sat at the front bar facing […]


Tuesday, July 14, 2009

We decided to start apartment hunting again. This will be the third or fourth time we mustered up some energy, fingers crossed that we find something before we run out of steam again.  We’re searching in Long Island City and Ice (our Jack Russell) came along with us for the drive. When lunch time rolled […]

I’ve heard a lot of hype about the brunch at
Prune 54 East First Street, New York, NY 10003, but they don’t take reservations and we’re not into waiting on line. When I decided to meet Alice for lunch, Prune seemed like the perfect idea, only a short walk from her office.
Mediocre […]

Brunch at Taboon

Monday, June 15, 2009

My friend Sara gets credit for telling me about
Taboon 773 Tenth Avenue, New York, NY 10019, a great option for brunch, but not your average Eggs Benedict and Banana Pancakes brunch. The chef is Israeli and draws inspiration mainly from his origins but takes bits and pieces from surrounding countries as […]

Brunch at Hom

Monday, June 1, 2009

Allison, from Robicelli’s, recommended brunch at Hom Hom, another neighborhood place where you’ll see the owner, Salvatore, getting to know his customers. For those who love secret little places, this is the place for you. The front is a cute home goods store, candles, massage oils, teas, and gifts. You would never guess that there […]

Now that the weather is warming up, I plan to start hitting some of those Brooklyn places on my “list”. Yesterday we hit ChestnutChestnut for brunch with Peter and Jeff, where Brooklyn adventures get off to a slow start, partly because Pete was 30 minutes late (are you reading this Mr?), and partly because Chestnut […]
