Reminds me of the many cafes I found in Little Italy of San Francisco a few weeks ago. All open late and serving coffee, desserts, and gelato. They had the espresso plus gelato dessert that you blogged about earlier and I really wanted to try it but I was craving some chocolaty cake. Next time.
I must agree a cozy little cafe can make any dull day seem at a distance. Too bad you did not make it to the salvage yard. I hope you at least found some lovely fabrics.
oh julia, you are missing out! but a chocalaty cake doesn't sound like too bad of a trade off.inessa - i did find some fantastic fabric! deeply discounted and perfect for some pillows on my soon-to-be-chosen couch.
