So, I took my girls.
They claim to be the only bean-to-bar chocolate maker. Their chocolate "laboratory" excited us.
However, I was hoping for more of an "experience" than we got. It is just a small shop with no seating. So, we selected our precious (outrageously expensive) chocolates and took them outside to share a table with the ants. Cacao was gracious enough to serve the chocolates on a silver platter.
Cacao, if you will add some inside seating and some espresso, I will happily visit you again.
After our mid-morning snack, we walked next door to City Issue, which features beautiful mid-century modern furniture and accessories.
I was really interested in this desk -
...but then I saw a much less expensive globe. My husband loves maps, so I bought it for him for his birthday. It currently looks so lovely sitting in our bedroom that I hope he forgets it was originally for his office.
I love the note in the front of the atlas -
I think it is fascinating how this captures a snapshot of a time in which it was uncertain how the war would affect the boundary lines of the world.
After dessert and shopping, we had to finish up with a pizza lunch at Fritti -
Cool decor. Great service. Not my favorite pizza. I'll have to go back some time to try something else. I will definitely take another trip to this cool little area.
