Breakfast at Isabel.  Boy, was their breakfast ever delicious and filling!  We held our bellies high as we walked out the door.

We had the short ribs with creamy polenta and fried leeks.  Divine!  We also both had a french onion soup but it was devoured before we even remembered to take our camera out.  oops!

Chocolate Molten Lava Cake and homemade ice cream for dessert!

but that wasn’t all…I had the mini (so NOT mini!)  trio.  I was on a sugar high about 3 minutes after this shot.

Nothing says comfort like a cup of hot chocolate, lemon macaron and their famous gibassier (a french pastry made from olive oil, candied orange peel, anise, and baker’s sugar to top it off).

Catch up time with good friends at Pearl Bakery.  They make the best pastries.  mmm…did I mention their croissants are to die for as well?

We had to go to voodoo donuts before making our way back home.  I personally am not a fan of donuts.  I’ll eat them but I’m not crazy about them like how I am for chocolate. 😉  Apparently, there is usually a very long line for these donuts but since we came early, the line was pretty short.  It was pretty cool to see so many different flavours of donuts.  Some were just beyond comprehension…like the maple bacon donut.  I will try that one out next time when I’m feeling more adventurous. hehe.
