    I have to admit I didn’t originally intend to go to Cafe de la Creme. Earlier I was at Hell’s Kitchen down the street, but got fed up with the noise and poor food there, and went in search of a gentler, quieter place. When I stumbled into de la Creme, I knew I was going to stay a while.

    Right as I walked into this cute bakery-cafe I bumped into a giant glass display case stuffed with a mouthwatering array of cakes, cookies, biscuits, pastries, pies and breads. Resisting the urge to buy one of each, I headed toward a table. Light streamed in through giant picture windows onto my simple wooden table, adorned with a white tablecloths and vase filled with tiny flowers.

    The menu features a decent selection of light-ish breakfast, brunch and lunch dishes, such as the eggs Florentine, the calamari salad, the bacon and brie sandwich, and the chicken and mushroom pie. There are actually quite a few vegetarian and “healthy” options too, which suits the hip, young neighborhood and those who live in it. There’s also a decent array of beers, ciders, wines, whiskies and spirits, and of course coffees, teas and juices.

    But the sweets are the star of the show here. My friends and I each chose a different one, so that we could try each others’ and not feel deprived. I opted for the chocolate brownie, while the others had baklava, lemon polenta cake, and cheesecake, respectively. Paired with hot chocolate, rooibos tea, and cafe macchiato, a good time was had by all.

    Prices were reasonable and the service was a bit slow, but friendly. I’d love to come back for breakfast (which is served all day on weekdays, and til noon on weekends).
