Honeysuckle Tea House
Enjoying mate at this bungalow style cafĂ©. 
I had fully intended on stoping by my favorite coffee bar for a shot of espresso and then I read a funny article about coffee and a few interesting coffee alternatives. One of the choices was mate also known as yerba mate which I had recently discovered was served at a local tea house, so I decided to head there instead.  It was a mini vacation. The vibes were all good.

its a beautiful day

From the Angels: 36 Hour Donut

Sunday, May 18, 2014

My newest market find was at a cute and happy little vendor's stand in Durham called Angel's Nest. They offered an incredible variety of empanadas, donuts and other pasteries.

The donuts are what really had the kids singing the "Can we please have..." song! So we snagged the lemon glazed variety.

It was terrific! It was filled with a custard but only inside the top half. It was then topped with lemon glaze and the angel's sparkles! Very cute, very delicious! As would be expected of any food item that takes 36 hours to prepare! I love it!
