I cannot even begin to describe the gluttony that took place this weekend. Given how I usually eat and my usual excess, this weekend topped even that. I will have to slowly blog through it, but figured I'd start with something easy - two cafe visits in between copious amounts of food and drink.
I had been to Cafe Grumpy once a long while ago, and have been wanting to revisit for a while, but am hardly ever in that area (Chelsea). As I am considering latte art classes, I figured it might be appropriate to check out the latte art here since they do teach them.
Not bad, but not nearly as pretty as the latte art at Caffetteria (see below). I think I'm just much more of a fan of the fern-like art than the more simple heart-shaped one.
I love this place because they serve Blue Bottle Coffee! I happily picked up some Papua New Guinea beans and they smell fantastic even wrapped up in the bag. Ever since I had the New Orleans style iced coffee at the Blue Bottle in Brooklyn, no other iced coffee did it for me. I seriously dream of this iced coffee, so I couldn't not get it at Caffetteria. Luckily my cafe-venturing partner got a VERY photogenic cappuccino so I could satisfy my photo needs.
Oof, my body is definitely rebelling and hurting. I will have to apologize to it and coax it back to the way it was before this weekend started. Fruit/liquid diet shall commence...we'll see how well that goes.
