Hi Spot In Madrona

Last week I ventured out
 to a cute neighborhood cafe.
Got coffee and a lavender cupcake.
Drove to a small hidden park
to enjoy my delic dessert.
I don't usually get out and about
but on this almost sunny day,
I did.

Where  ?
Coffee and breakfast ~ Hi Spot Cafe
Cupcake  ~ Cupcake Royale in Madrona
Park ~ Lakeview Park, Seattle

Hi Spot Cafe is about a block away
First we found a parking spot.
Which isn't easy as this is in a
 neighborhood with no extra parking.
Ate breakfast which was a
delic omelet with coffee.
Afterwards, I walked to
Cupcake Royale for a devilish dessert.
 Drove all over the neighborhood
and finally found this very hidden 
park that is right on the water.
Nothing like enjoying
oneself on a semi sunny day.

(These places are not in my area.
I drove about forty five minutes
into a part of Seattle
 that my daughter knows.
She told me we just had to go out
 to breakfast and get a cupcake.
Who am I to turn that down !!!)

Now that must have been a fabulous day! That looks like a terrific latté and while I've never had a lavender cupcake, I don't think I've ever met a sweet I didn't like. Yum!

Very lovely, and a little inspiring (as if I need to be inspired to go cupcake shopping)!

looks like a perfect breakfast to me!

Clearly your daughter knows best. From the looks of the menus, breakfast, coffee and dessert all looked delicious. I am amazed at how similar we look. Though I imagine you are taller than me, and you did get your hair cut while that's on my to-do list.

Thanks for the vicarious trip to Seattle.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
