This month, I'm participating in the September #NaBloPoMo. The theme is “Eye.” Today's prompt was to “Write about one object you see at this exact moment.” While the object I'm choosing to write about I actually saw earlier today, I knew the instant that I saw it that it was what I needed to write about.
I stopped into a little bistro in Pasadena today called Crème de la Crêpe Café. This little cafe has a delightful menu and wine bar (score). The beverage I ordered was a Wild Hibiscus Flower and Champagne Mimosa. The hibiscus, soaked in a raspberry syrup, was added to the bottom of the flute and topped with Champagne. It was beautiful. “Lovely” was the word I used to describe it to the bartender, who chuckled, bemused by my description.
I also ordered a Douce Crêpe Nutella, which was delicious and the perfect little afternoon snack. The presentation was wonderful. This bistro's attention to detail and presentation is phenomenal. The customer service of the bartender/server that waited on me was spectacular.
Want to go? Crème de la Crêpe Café on Colorado Blvd in Pasadena, CA. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner served daily 8 a.m.–10 p.m.
