Monday Adventure

On Monday, Dewey, Kristine and I went to the North End.

Any trip to the North End has to include a visit to Polcari's.


I could spend hours inside that store.


Their wall of coffee makes me happy.


So do their snacks. I bought some dried apricots. They were amazing.

Afterwards, we went to Cafe Vittoria and got affogato.


(That's what it's called when they pour espresso over gelato and Abbie dies of deliciousness.)

It was an excellent Monday off.

  2. Ooooooh affogato! Truly the best way to enjoy an espresso! I haven't had one in forever, I think a trip to the North End is in order when it gets a bit warmer.
