|ahhhh ... true love|
First, I must confess that prior to my first trip to Italy, I was a major contributor to the success of Starbucks. But one valuable lesson I learned from Italians: sit and give your coffee the respect it deserves. Neighborhoods full of people sit and enjoy their coffee over the paper or with friends. That may be your Starbucks - but I was always dashing in and out running from one errand or appointment to another. So I have made a conscious effort to only order coffee drinks when I am able to give them the proper time. The other lesson I learned: an amazing cup of coffee is worth waiting for. And hence this sojourn to Cambridge.
Fingers crossed, I made my way down MA Ave with a slew of quarters for feeding meters. And was rewarded with a wonderful breakfast! Pics below of the yumminess and my stroll through Harvard Square. Locals - visit Hi-Rise. You won't be disappointed!
