(Please feel free to join Richard and I in the reading of Honore de Balzac's Eugenie Grandet, on which we're posting next week.)

    1. It's "just" a plain cappuccino, Terri, but how many people can make that where I live? Not many! I'd like to sit with you while each sip one.

    1. It was so nice to run into a coffee shop that wasn't Starbucks. Not that I don't love Starbucks, but one does hunger and thirst for orignality, too.

    1. It's so amazing how they put the design on there; I always thought it was with a special tool, but this barista just made the swirls by moving her wrist back and forth. Amazing to me!

  5. Ah, you need to come visit me! We have a quaint little cafe within walking distance (near our bike trail). It's called Caffe Italia and it serves drinks just like the one in your third photo. We love it!

    1. I most definitely would love to visit that cafe with you! (No wonder you ride so much if it's by your trail. ;)

    1. That's so neat that ee'ce enjoyed the same place! I didn't have any breakfast there, just their coffee, but it was memorable stuff. I can only imagine how awesome the whole deal would be.

  12. I'm such an Iowa girl. I never can see or hear "Balzac" without thinking of "The Music Man". You can find the reference here , between 0:40 and 0:55.
