hesitant to share

I have been frequenting this brand new little cafe for weeks, but I have been hesitant to share it with you because it is so cute and so amazing that to be honest I did not want to over crowd it. I wanted to keep this to myself. But then I took my friend Heather with me yesterday and she too shared the simple pleasure and I realized I could not keep it to myself. I could not be responsible for robbing you of the joy that comes from just walking through the door of Cafe Delmarette.

You may have been walking right past this new jem with out even taking note because it is nestled right by the Del Mar Theater. (another place worth going)
Now when you walk by take note and wander in. You will not be disappointed, unless you hate yummy food and amazing coffee. My favorites so far are the BLT and the Cheddar Gorge. Though that is also all I have head so I am getting the feeling that it is all good.

You may have just thought, Trinity a BLT really? Who could screw up a BLT? You are right it is hard to mess them up but I would venture that it is equally hard to find one this mouth watering. They use fresh ingredients though so you better hurry up and get there before the tomato season is over. Sad day that will be.

They serve Verve coffee which I am coming to appreciate as the best coffee around to make Americanos with. So smooth and rich.

Then there are the lovely people who work there who take pride in what they do and make. You can just tell! Even their menu is cute and always changing with the new specials that I always long to sample. I have thus far resisted the tiny beautiful cupcakes because I can tell that once I have one I will long for more. Don't they just call out to you?

I did give in and try a fig and goat cheese scone which will either sound really good to you or really gross. I loved it the first time, it was sweet and bitter and crunchy and soft all at the same time. The second time I bought one I was not quite as in love with it, because the figs were a bit over powering. Now I want to move on to the cherry tomato and white cheddar one.

Okay enough said it is good. You should go so that by some fluke they go out of business because that my Santa Cruz friends would be an utter shame.

You might want to check out their facebook page and look at even more mouth watering goodness and become a fan!
I jacked all the pictures from their page in hopes that you will go eat lots of their food and drink their coffee. (so I don't think they will mind.)

Oh and I forgot to mention that it has a great history and is really cute. Oh just go check it out.

Creating Traffic

In most cases Traffic is bad news. No one like to sit in traffic, and to be sure being the cause of bad traffic is even less fun. But I am hoping to drum up some traffic on my other not quite as popular blog. So faithful and not so faithful readers of this blog click here to read the other equally good, but perhaps new to you blog. It is all about my adventure of following God to Rome.

Worth the Wait

Ever since I moved to Santa Cruz, I have always been enraptured with the cuteness of Gabriella's Cafe. Sure there are cuter places in Santa Cruz and there are fancier restaurants to be sure, but there is something about Gabriella's that say's I am something special.

Being the romantic that I am I immediately decided that I would not dine at Gabriella's for any reason other than a fabulous date. Which is why for the past seven years I have been to almost every other dining establishment in my town minus this one. This is not to say I have not been on a date, I just never ended up on a date at Gabriella's.

Today though, I was walking by, and it was just such a beautiful day, and it looked so inviting, that before I could talk myself out of waiting I had been seated at a table for one.

All I have to say is that it was lovely. Everything I wanted it to be it was. I was glad to find that they use local fresh ingredients, combined to make delicious Italian food. They also had a great wine list featuring Italian and Local wines.

The staff was friendly and attentive. The dining room was simple and romantic, sunny and welcoming. I cannot wait to go back in the evening to enjoy the patio under the lights strung overhead.

You can see why I think it is the perfect date spot, but don't hold off on going till you have the perfect man (or lady) take yourself on a date and enjoy!
