Asia Society: Manhattan

Look closely and you will see what caught my eye about this sign.  It was the cute little dragon under the message found in every public toilet in town. I don't always love the exhibitions here, though I have seen some fabulous ones. What does draw me back is the shop, which has the most wonderful assortment of items especially jewellry, and the cafe which boasts three live trees plus a refreshing and delicate menu with a massive tea selection. Like eating in the park no matter what time of year.

Amy’s Bakery Arts Cafe: Brattleboro, VT

The flowers may look real, but they were not- contrary to what I would have expected in VT. The manuscript was also a reprint- no surprise there. Sort of an odd combo, especially for a soup, salad, sandwich, home baked goods crunchy sort of place. Maybe this is how they justify the "Arts" in the name of the cafe or maybe it has something to do with the number of artists who seem to frequent the place.

Lemonleaf Cafe: Kinsale, Ireland

Breakfast after a hard night of wandering the pubs and dancing until the band went home- which was only 1am.  Pretty wallpaper for a pretty little cafe.  Wish the food had been better, but what can you expect when you don't order the Irish breakfast.
