I know I'm really home from a trip when I start taking pictures in New York City again. I still have (at least) two more posts about Peru, but I wanted to share a neighborhood adventure while it's still current for this week's Pink Saturday fun.
Many moons ago a favorite movie was "You've Got Mail," and Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan stopped at Cafe Lalo during the movie. Café Lalo is still open of West 83rd Street and I walk by it often on the way to the library. There's been talk that it may be closing and my friend, B, who had never been there suggested we have lunch there. I haven't been there in quite awhile and I was happy to schedule a return visit.
I ate very sensibly during this visit, but I think I need a return visit at a quieter time to sample at least one of the desserts. I think it's going to be a very difficult choice, but I've got several in mind.
I'm pretty sure my first choice of dessert is the S'Mores Pie, closely followed by the Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Pie. I'm a s'mores fan and this looks like the next best to actual s'mores eaten next to a campfire.
Tucked in the back of the top shelf is the Chocolate Mint Torte, which is also one of my top picks. I love anything chocolate and mint and I don't think this one will disappoint.
This basket of scones and croissants captured my attention and I'd like a second slightly less dessert oriented visit to try a scone. I would definitely have a cappuccino with my treat.
If I were giving awards for the most attractive cup of cappuccino -- love the bright yellow -- this one would definitely be nominated.
Which treat is your pick?
Although the calendar doesn't say it, it's been spring in New York City and I have so enjoyed it. The forecast is colder for next week and I'm going to have to remember to take my gloves with me. There have been a few no socks and even no jacket days. What a treat!
As ever, thanks for visiting and have a very pretty in pink weekend.
