Leafy Brownstone Streets, Limoncello Mascarpone Cake, A Happy Labor Day…

2010/09/08 § 5 Comments

Spent the day walking around the neighborhood with a dear friend.

Dropped by Bittersweet Coffee for iced latte (again) and made the short trek to Choice Market for delectable Pain au Chocolat.

Talked about many a things while sitting under a tree at the park and while taking in the sights of pretty cafes, brownstones, leafy streets, the grand interior of the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the many beautiful churches dotting the area.

Walked a couple of blocks home to catch a game of tennis from the ongoing US Open and went back out for late lunch at this excellent, homey Italian place, Caffe e’ Vino.

The homemade Pappardelle with fresh wild mushrooms was outstanding.

The limoncello mascarpone cake was divine.

Even the biscotti that comes free with orders of coffee is light, crisp and wonderful.  Pasta and desserts are fresh and homemade.

Best of all, we were attended to by a lovely old man who was knowledgeable, warm and courteous.

I see many Caffe e’ Vino days in my near future.
