Ceci Cela

Saturday, June 20, 2009

When I planned out my visit to La Colombe Torrefaction, a croissant was also on the agenda. A few reviews mentioned that they sourced wonderful croissants from
Ceci Cela 55 Spring Street, New York, NY 10012, but when Lily and I got there Friday afternoon at 2pm, they were out already. I […]

La Colombe Torrefaction

Saturday, June 20, 2009

This post signifies the start of a new section at Foodmayhem, called Weekend Shout Out! I learn so much from other food blogs so each week, we’re going to feature a post from another blog that I loved.

I’ve had
La Colombe Torrefaction 319 Church Street, New York, NY 10013 on “my list” […]

Shore Road Bagels and Leske’s Danish Bakery

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Salvatore (of Hom) also mentioned Shore Road Bagel & Deli Shore Road Bagel & Deli, where the bagels are huge. We chose 4 flavors: poppy seed, cinnamon raisin, salt, and everything.

The oddest thing was that each bagel dough was so different. We broke into the poppy seed first and both frowned in disappointment. It was […]


Wednesday, April 29, 2009

This frozen yogurt fad has some confused, with the more recent ones tasting more tangy like yogurt, while old-school frozen yogurt tasted more like ice cream. Amongst friends the votes are divided as to which they prefer, so it seems like a good idea for Daydream Daydream to offer both, Original-Creamy and Original-Icy. Lon prefers […]

Oren’s Daily Roast

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

I used to rave about Oren’s Daily Roast (multiple locations) as one of my favorite coffees in NYC, but I just had a cup yesterday and it was acidic. I know they change the coffee blend daily but when I used to live close to one, I had a cup nearly every day and never […]

Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee

Saturday, March 28, 2009

I’m always trying new coffee spots so I asked a few of my girlfriends to meet me at Jack’s Stir Brew Jack’s Stir Brew yesterday. It’s a cute little place with some benches outside, which we took advantage of. Despite the line, we were in and out of there quickly, paying reasonable prices for organic […]

Billy’s Bakery

Saturday, March 21, 2009

Melinda, an old co-worker of Lon’s , brought us an assortment of cupcakes from Billy’s Bakery Billy’s Bakery, a place their old office frequented. She obviously knows the way to our hearts.

Lon remembers their cupcakes being better before, but this time we were pretty disappointed. The Banana Cupcake was so dense and gummy, with an […]

Le Pain Quotidien

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

I popped in to Le Pain Quotidien (multi-locational) this morning for a cup of coffee. Their coffee is pretty flavorful, only slightly bitter, a good stand-by but nothing to rave about. I like that they have agave syrup as a sweetener option beyond the standard sugars.
As I waited for my coffee, I tried to snap […]

The Roasting Plant

Saturday, February 14, 2009

We just happened to walk by The Roasting Plant The Roasting Plant today, and seeing a sign that said they brew by the cup, drew me right in. Remember that place I love in San Francisco, Philz? Grinding and brewing each cup to order does make a big difference. The Roasting Plant takes it a […]

Doughnut Plant

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

A few nights ago, my brother brought over 10 doughnuts from Doughnut Plant Doughnut Plant. Good heavens! They were so good. Between the 5 of us, we all had different favorites, but I could really eat any and all of them. To be picky (yes, I have to be) the one complaint I have is […]
