my daughter is visiting from new york...and we have so many things we've planned to do...we're scheduling our days. today...we visited the east bay.
blue bottle coffee company - she'd seen this on either the food network or the cooking channel..and wanted to give it a try. i ordered a regular coffee...as i wanted the pure coffee experience.
peerless coffee - no...i wasn't in need of another coffee. they roast coffee AND peanuts. since we were in the area...i thought i'd pick some up.
bakesale betty - they were closed (and we knew this) but i had told her about it...so we drove by. i've never been here...but have read about the chicken sandwiches. one day...i'll give them a try.
masse's pastries - we went here because i wanted to try macarons (after seeing them on tafari's blog).
while in the area...a few other places caught my eye...all in epicurious garden: kitchen on fire (cooking classes), kirala (japanese cuisine) and imperial tea court (dim sum). i'll visit them another day.
taylor's refresher - we drove out to the st. helena location for dinner. i had the regular hamburger, onion rings & a glass of red wine. after all...we were in the napa valley. :)
next...we're heading east! there's a sangria i had a couple of weeks ago...and we're going straight to the source!
