CHOCO BOLO

A cute little cafe opened up in my neighborhood on Broadway.  Cute name!

CAKE, COFFEE & CONVERSATION.  I  enjoyed all three !

The decor creates an ambience that is very close to a “Parisian” experience.

The menu has savories as well as a nice selection of pastries. A  breakfast special is available……….any coffee and a muffin …….. $4.95.

One of their “famous” chocolate cak….looks good……..tastes even better .

My coffee was piping hot…..loved the large cup………very Parisian Bistro.

Cinnamon Cheesecake…………creamy…….chocolate-y……….

The Barista……cute and well trained in his art.

This is a Portugese specialty…….pasteis de nata…….a kind of egg custard………new to my taste buds.

Tiny mirror topped tables, cute but very close together. ……..making it very easy to get to know your neighbors.

These two ladies were enjoying their morning coffee ……….and conversation.

Hmmm…….  which pastry shall I try next?

A plain ‘ol croissant…………but only one.  Pleasantly flaky.
