Should you ever find yourself in North Cambridge, not too far from Davis Square and the Arlington border, I strongly recommend a trip to Verna's.


They're a little hole-in-the-wall, but they make the best donuts around. I've been going since I was tiny. My dad would take Dewey and me out for a chocolate honey dipped and an orange juice most Saturday mornings when we were little.

(the chocolate honey-dipped are still my favorite)

Anyway, I recommend that you get a dozen. Include a couple of coffee rolls, even if they're not your favorite. Someone will like them.


Then, find a couple of friends and a good place to sit. (You may need to drive. Or you could walk to Davis.)
Coffee's a pretty good thing, too.


Then you should eat the donuts and be happy.

While we were in DC, Em, La, James and I stopped by Union Market, where we cooled off from the muggy day with iced coffee at Peregrine Espresso in Union Market. The coffee was amazing, and Union Market was so nice. It's the kind of place I'd visit all the time if I lived there, I think.
