Tea with Tracy

Tea with Tracy is the best (and maybe only?) tea room in Fairfield County, Connecticut.  I ordered mini sandwiches filled with cream cheese and jam.  They were very sweet but had a little portion size that left me hungry.  I would recommend having a light breakfast before.  For the price I expected more but nevertheless…

Serendipity 3

I am taking this Thursday to send out a TBT post!  I went to Serendipity 3 during the winter and the wait was very long.  The wait was around 40 minutes and we had 3 people.  I ordered their iconic frozen hot chocolate and it was phenomenal.  It was also a beautiful Instagram opportunity. Author:…

Cupcake Market

One of Instagram’s hottest trends is the Cupcake Market.  Home of celebrity portraits in cookie form.  The celebrities they had in stock were crying Kim K (pictured), Kanye West, Drake, and Jim Halpert.  Warning!  The cookies are $16 each!  I assume the reason is because each of the cookies are decorated by hand.  The inside of the…

Mecha Noodle Bar

Mecha Noodle Bar is the best place in New Haven, CT for ramen.  They also have great drinks that come in cool tiki-inspired glasses!  If you’re lucky you might get the tiki glass.  You will be impressed by the young crowd, great service, and crave-able taste.

Taiyaki

Happy Easter!  Today is the last day to order the Easter themed cone at Taiyaki.  Taiyaki is a little ice cream shop located in China Town, NYC.  What makes this place special is that their cones are shaped like fish!  The wait was around 10 minutes but it goes by quickly.  Enjoy!

Terrain

Today I went to Terrain.  Terrain is a big plant store/home goods store located in Westport, CT.  Plants are not all they have to offer though.  Inside is the beautiful Westport Garden Cafe that serves brunch until 3 every day!  Tip: make reservations because it gets very busy. My friend and I ordered french toast, eggs benedict, and vanilla…

Village Bagels

Today I went to Village Bagels in Westport, CT and ordered their Instagram famous rainbow bagel!  Village Bagels is a no-frill, no-stress restaurant.  I would suggest not toasting the bagel to get the most picture perfect shot.  Also, order the strawberry cream cheese.

Crepes Choupette

One of my favorite places to go in New Haven is Crepes Choupette.  It is super busy in the mornings so I would recommend going around 2pm.  There are two types of crepes: sweet and savory.  My favorite sweet crepe is Amour et Jalousie (pictured) which is nutella, strawberry, and banana.  My favorite savory crepe…

The Crooked Knife

A perfect brunch place for Millennials! They have bottomless mimosas for only $40. Please be careful because mimosas can be very dangerous! Also, the wait staff is phenomenal (ask for George). I got the Eggs Benedict. Author: Rachael Elani Crooked Knife: Website Instagram Yelp

Financier Patisserie

If you are early for your Metro North train check out this little bakery.  The raspberry on top moved around a little on the train ride back but she’s still pretty!  I would also recommend getting the large, French Macarons. Author: Rachael Financier Patisserie: Website Yelp Instagram
