In between eating, we did some more eating.
We stopped over at the Pearl Bakery. Check out this pastry.
It had the texture of a doughnut with subtle orange and anise flavors. Kind of like a very sophisticated doughnut.
We also went to Lovejoy Bakers, which is a little further out in the Pearl District. We liked that there was less traffic - both pedestrian and cars. There was also loads of outside seating which made for a great place to relax and read while waiting for our next dinner reservation.
We ordered some sandwiches and then just hung out. I love vacation.
