Good morning sunshine! It might be pouring outside, but all is well and cozy inside Thé Adoré, a Japanese-owned French bakery/café on 13th Street. The bakery is on the first floor – look for warm quiches and a parade of sweets. Madelines, tarts, and almond butter financiers. But if you wish to stay for a nibble, go up one flight the creaky stairs, don’t forget to leave your wet umbrella near the entrance. We’re here for breakfast with Noelle – she’s in town for just a few days.
Sign me up for a morning meal of fresh-baked croissants – so flaky, and baguettes. Doesn’t it remind you of Paris? The baguette is still warm, sliced lengthwise and ready for a hearty spread of butter. Apricot jam or strawberry? Strawberry please!
Orange juice, tea, and a savory breakfast sandwich for Noelle. Here is our spread, let’s dig in. Warm wooden tables and views of a tree-lined street. Catch-up chats and gossip of the girly sort, an extra sugar cube or two just because. Positively serene.
