Yesterday, my sister was stuck in New York due to inclement weather (or the threat of inclement weather, anyway). I'm sure this was a bummer for her, but it did mean that she, my other sister, and I could go to brunch at Cafe Lalo together.
If you're a fan of Meg Ryan + Tom Hanks movies (and who isn't?) you might recognize Cafe Lalo from You've Got Mail. Their characters have a run-in at this European-styled cafe. Fortunately, it has plenty of charm, apart from its 90s film cred--and that's saying something, from someone who loves that movie more than she can admit without cringing a little.
|I really like their cheery color combinations, as well as the simple style of the cups and creamers. I also have fixation on creamers, which unfortunately fall squarely in the "You Only Need One. Seriously." category.|
|Worth noting, for three-cup coffee drinkers like myself: they serve a darker roast of coffee. |
Not for the faint of heart.
Unfortunately, the slush outside restricted my footwear, particularly since I realized the tread on my overshoes is dangerously worn down. Luckily, I realized this before getting the chance to inadvertently ice skate up Broadway.
Is snow boots-plus-circle skirt my favorite combination? Nope. But did I careen into a snow drift? Nope. I'll be bringing my overshoes to a cobbler this week, but in the meantime, this'll do just fine.
