65. Morning Glory – September 28, 2014 – Grosse Pointe Farms, MI



What a delightful little place! Not only is it a bakery, it’s a coffee-house, too, and it offers, as it puts it on its website, “coffee-based liquor drinks, champagne, wine and more.” Booze and pastries in the same setting? How awesome is that? And check out the gorgeous cakes they offer, above.

I actually didn’t get anything from myself here, but I got a friend a chocolate-mousse torte that she said was incredibly rich and amazing. I really want to come back here to try it myself.

64. The Jagged Fork – September 28, 2014 – Grosse Pointe Farms, MI



Yikes! I’ve gotten so far behind on adding posts to this blog. Between planning for my 30th birthday party and then celebrating it, I’ve stayed really busy the last couple of weeks. So here comes an onslaught of posts!

The Jagged Fork is a really cute little restaurant in Grosse Pointe Farms offering breakfast and lunch (mostly breakfast). There’s a wide variety of French toasts, pancakes, omelets, sweet and savory crepes, and more. Check it out on a lazy Sunday morning.

I went here for a family dinner where we sat in the boardroom, which was very nice but was separated from all of the action. They did have a TV in there so you could still see the jazz band playing, which cracked me up. It reminded me of how one of the churches I used to go to when I was a kid put TVs in the hall on Christmas and Easter so the people who couldn’t get seats could still view the mass – not quite the same as being up near the action! The main dining area was very luxe and had much more character than where we sat.

I forgot to take pictures! Shame on me – but here is one of the bar, courtesy of Yelp user Kristin G. (via
