Sad to say, life's always about reality, so back to work I return to. Ciao fun, Hello mundane.
April's gonna be a busy month for me still. The Sis's shop is opening next month, and I've to help her out whenever possible. I have boatloads of photos to edit and I reckon I won't be blogging much still. Here's an interim post on a brunch session I had a couple weeks back with my fave brunch buddy.
Taken with my iPhone
It's been quite a long while since I last visited Riders Cafe. My last visit was in 2010, where I blogged about it here. The place was as crowded as ever. We were almost an hour late for our reservation (thanks to said fave brunch buddy - LOL), but luckily we waited shortly before we were shown to an available table. Reservations are a must. I overheard the server telling walk-in customers the wait was around an hour and a half. *jaws dropped* Service was pretty good, the server was friendly and had a bright smile on her, and waiters walked around and offered water in glasses to those who were waiting in the queue.
Blackstone Benedict; "The Usual"
Girlfriend ordered the big breakkie, and everything was pretty good. My eggs ben were average - one of the eggs was cooked (!), the other, thankfully was still runny, so that saved the day.
We were happily sipping our coffees, chatting as usual, when we spotted a plate of decadent tempting huge slice of chocolate cake heading...for the table next to us. It looked simply divine. I badgered the girlfriend (who's not even a big fan of chocolate) to order it to share. It isn't called the Death by Chocolate Cake for no reason. Immensely rich to a fault, we obviously didn't even finish half of it. But it certainly did manage to suppress my (almost)daily chocolate cravings. ;)
I like Riders Cafe, it still has a lovely atmosphere, and I like that the location is far away from the city area (driving there is certainly recommended).
