coffee, chocolate. need i say more?
I am by no means one of those girls who swears by chocolate. Don’t get me wrong, I love the decadent delight. But when push comes to shove, I could easily give up the cocoa treat.
Yesterday, I saw on a local blog that Max Brenner (Chocolate by the Bald Man) opened up a new coffee bar/bakery in my ‘hood. Naturally, I had to check it out. I mean, come on… chocolate AND coffee??????
I walked in to find delicious goodies and such lovely coffee beckoning – mmmmmm.
With wide-eyes, I actually had eye-sex with the baked goodies. The guy behind the counter had to wave at me to get my attention to ask if I needed anything.
Did I need anything?!
YES! One of everything, please!
I wound up only, only getting the chocolate molten cake and a chocolate/vanilla pastry twist. The chocolate molten cake was DELISH! I would have taken a pic if St. Elmo and I hadn’t scarfed it down in three seconds flat. One minute in the microwave turned a chocolate cake into chocolate heaven. We haven’t tried the pastry twist yet, but I anticipate that even a one day old, semi-stale pastry twist will taste amazing.
Having this store one block away from the subway stop might just be the death of me. I suppose the only positive is that it is one block in the opposite direction from home, so the lazy part of me might prevent me from making the looonnnnggg one block trek. *snort*
Whatever, who am I kidding? I’m gonna be a regular there. Sucking down coffee and chocolate like it’s my job.
