I started yesterday with some much needed quality tea time with a good friend. It had been a busy, long and slightly sleep deprived week. Daycare called and asked for E an    hour early, yes, requested that I drop my child off an hour early!                                 Worked out perfectly, and we headed to a newish cafe on Main St. I remember walking by Trafiq just before their grand opening when they were just setting up. That was within the last year.

Trafiq is a french style cafe. Very comfortable inside, bright and airy and the tables don’t feel like they are on top of one another. There are glass swinging doors into the kitchen, so you can see the magic happening! And the chefs wear actual floppy baker’s hats!

creative use of mixer!

We took our teas outside to enjoy the hour before the rain started. We also shared a Chunky Monkey.  Banana chocolate bread pudding made with croissants. Seriously.

Also on the menu were croissants, pain au chocolat, tarts, panini and as if to taunt us a shelf of fresh baked bread and baguette was rolled up to the window as we were getting ready to leave.

I certainly wouldn’t complain if I had to start every day this way!
