8. Cacao Tree Café – April 5, 2014 – Royal Oak, MI


Delicious organic vegan meals are offered here. Above is a picture of the burrito I ordered. The “meat” is a seasoned mix of walnuts, almonds, and sunflower seeds; I really appreciated how tasty it was, as I haven’t been able to stand any other fake meat I’ve had in the past. This was incredibly healthy AND great-tasting – yay!

7. Love and Buttercream – March 21, 2014 – Royal Oak, MI



I loved, loved, loved this cute little bakery tucked into a strip mall on the edge of Royal Oak.  I wish I would’ve taken a picture of the inside of it, with its tulip bouquets in glass Mason jars and display cases enshrining wonderful goodies: cupcakes and bread-pudding cups and cookie-dough bites. But I didn’t, so I will have to settle for these visuals I took of the bakery exterior and of these delicious macaroons I purchased.
