        Hi Lynn! Blog reader cousin here. You, Emily and Kai should all come in for lunch before Kai leaves us for NYC. The pastries ARE good, but the sandwiches are heaven!

    Ahh Delirium is my all-time favorite beer! Was the first alcohol I purchased when I turned 21;) Hope you have an amazing New Year!

    I love Proof for their Coffee and Teas. I haven’t ever made it in early enough to try their pastries – they are almost always gone by noon! Now that I’m an early riser I’m making it a point to visit.
