Perfect Summer Breakfast





On the first official day of summer, what better spot to eat breakfast, than an outdoor table at a wonderful little cafe? My daughter Melissa and I went on an impromptu shopping trip, to a neighboring city, on Saturday and began the morning at the perfect restaurant, where it was so lovely to enjoy the beautiful summer weather and catch up with all her news and plans.



French doors were open, wide to the street and we were seated in in the best spot to watch the people strolling by and outside enjoying their day.



The decor was an eclectic mix of patten, color and comfortable sofas and chairs, beckoning you to relax, stay a while and enjoy your coffee.



Since it was the first day of summer and strawberry season, I couldn't resist ordering the strawberry shortcake waffle. It was so good; light, crispy and topped with delicious homemade whipped cream and fresh strawberries. While I went for a sweet option, my daughter chose a greek omelet, that looked delicious too.

I love discovering a new restaurant; especially one that serves breakfast. I already told my husband that I need to take him there very soon :-)


Happy Monday!
