I visited La Patisserie by Luxe Sweets on West Annie the other day and enjoyed their almond croissant with a latte. It was a nice mid-morning break--sneaking a quiet moment with the paper in this quaint and charming little bakery. The following week I meet a friend at Houndstooth Coffee which is a special place that takes coffee very seriously. They brew each cup individually by hand (this is a process that takes time, but is worth it--see photo below). They serve Cuvee coffee, which is a local coffee roaster that I love. I ordered a cinnamon roll which was coincidentally made by Luxe Sweets. I have to say, this cinnamon roll was the best I've had in Austin (even better than that bakery that is known for their cinnamon rolls). Flakey, sweet, but not too sweet, with the perfect amount of butter. Divine. (Cathy)
The love of food and how it can bring people together led to the creation of this blog. As a mother of two grown boys, who have left the nest and occasionally return, I noticed a common occurrence-- there is usually someone at home who is hungry.
