To keep the celebration going one last day my mom, sister, and I headed to Butter Cafe for brunch.
Though the local business is fairly close to me, I had not eaten there before today. I've heard great things and what I really love about it is that they buy ingredients locally. Fresh, organic, local fare--you can't beat that!
The place is charmingly decorated and everything you would expect from a small bakery/cafe. To start we all had some hot, fair-trade coffee and put in our breakfast orders.
My mom and sister had omelets and I had--wait for it...Chai Tea French Toast!
Talk about a winning breakfast! This decadent french toast was dipped in a chai latte custard, grilled until golden brown, and layered with creamy marscapone cheese to which I topped off with some maple syrup.
We ate, chatted, and sipped coffee until our stomachs could hold no more and then headed out for a quick stop at only my favorite place to run an errand!
If you caught me on Facebok yesterday, you've already read about how wonderful my mom is. But I could never say it enough so I'll say it again!
My mother is a selfless, gracious woman whom I love and look up to dearly. I couldn't ask for a better example of a mother and I am so blessed to call her my mom! Happy Birthday, Mom! I hope you've enjoyed all of your celebrations.
