Aroma Coffee and Tea
After a quick trip to the farmers’ market (grapefruits, oranges, apples, and amazing pumpernickel bread), I met a friend for a day of coffee and shopping.
Actually, there was no coffee–both of us had chai lattes. They were good, but I’m here to tell you that the baked goods at Aroma Coffee and Tea are fantastic. Why not have cake for breakfast? Why not indeed, when the cake is a luscious lemon layer cake with lemon-coconut icing? (Actually, it will make several breakfasts; the slice was not only rich, but so huge it was more of a wedge). My friend’s apricot-ginger scone was also excellent.
And what did I take home with me (besides 2/3 of my slice of cake)? Brown Butter Sea Salt Cookies, by the Brown Butter Cookie Company. These are great–intensely buttery and delicately sweet. It’s a good thing I didn’t buy more.
