Beta5 Cream Puffs

I’ve heard so much about Beta5 cream puffs that one day I finally decided to head down there with TDog to try them out.  The kitchen is located in an industrial area (fittingly called Industrial Ave.).  If not for Google maps and Beta5’s sandwich board, the store would be easy to miss.  They have dedicated […]

Citrus Tart @ Beaucoup Bakery

On my last girl date with TDog, we made a trip down to Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe so TDog could try out their pastries too.  A good thing about Beaucoup is that they come out with seasonal limited edition pastries to keep things interesting. This time around, to give us a taste of summer which […]

Hot Chocolates & CakeBread Bakery

Cold winter weather always calls for a nice, cozy cup of hot chocolate don’t you agree? We took a short trip to the island, and while it wasn’t exactly wintery weather, it was still mighty cold.
