When in the course of Blogging from A to Z -- with thanks to the writers of the Declaration of Independence -- my plans can go astray in a minute. I've got most of my letters accounted for, but my plan for "D" included a trip today to a more far flung part of Manhattan after my morning dental appointment. Thanks to a train delay the person who had the appointment before me was going to be late, and I was asked if I could come in at noon instead of 10"00 a.m. The plans of this blogger went awry thanks to a signal problem on the subway. It was time for a detour in my search for the best coffee in New York.
As I left the dentist's office I thought I would quickly come upon another fancy coffee place. But I didn't find anything that fit that category. My detour took me in another direction. I posed this question to myself. How good is the average cup of coffee in an average restaurant? I stopped at the Cascade on Eighth Avenue (at 53rd Street). I'd had coffee here before and thought it met the category of an average restaurant I might run into for a quick lunch or cup of coffee.
Since it was winter today -- despite the April date -- I ordered a cup of hot coffee and a salad. The presentation wasn't elegant, but the price was right. My fancier cops of coffee have been at least two dollars a cup. The one pictured below was $1.25, and it was good. It wasn't a great cup of coffee, but it was smooth, not bitter and I enjoyed it a lot. I'm giving it a "B" and remembering that there are a lot of good cups of coffee in New York City. Thanks, Cascade, for a cup well brewed.
I'm enjoying the A to Z Challenge, but I'd forgotten that it's a lot of work putting together a post every single day. Happily I've my pictures for "E" and "F" are set and my posts are (mostly) composed. I'm also enjoying the very gracious comments that have been left on these posts. Thanks!
So much coffee, so little time! As ever thanks for visiting and take good care.
