I typically choose the chicken salad sandwhich on yummy pretzel bread, served with a side of my favorite pickled beets. Yes, you read that right, pickled beets are my favorite!

I never leave this place without a slice of homemade cake. This particular day we could choose from red velvet, chocolate or lemon rosemary. I went for the unusual and I’m so glad I did–it was amazing!

    That’s one place I would love to go. I saw a few things that caught my eye. The main one was that typewriter. Was that only $5? It may be wishful thinking but I really liked it.
