granny chic cafe
Last night, I had the most lovely dinner with my BFF(+E!) from high school. We haven’t had enough quality time, and it was nice to sit and talk for two hours about some old memories and what’s new in our lives. Whenever we go out for coffee or a quick dinner, I always suggest Van Gogh’s Ear in our hometown because of its relaxed atmosphere and delicious food. I’m a creature of habit and always order the same thing – penne with pink basil sauce and chocolate mousse cake for desert. My favorite thing about this hole in the wall place is the decoration. The granny chic furniture is a mish-mash of furniture either from garage sales or thrifty finds, but I love how everything just sort of fits. Even the dishes and silverware are mismatched, and it almost makes you feel like you’re eating at your grandmother’s house. Plus, any coffee shop that has board games to play while you sip your decaf black tea (with honey) gets an A+ in my book.
Let me introduce you to my little slice of heaven. (My diabetic grandmother would say it’s better than sex, no joke.) No one gets my obsession with chocolate mousse, but this one is seriously the best. It was recently taken off the menu, and I got to enjoy one of the very last slices they had. So sad, but it’s probably for the best. I do have to fit into a wedding dress soon!
