Sweet, sweet sticky bun at Flour Bakery + Cafe

When I was in Cambridge, I visited Flour Bakery + Cafe, because I needed some fortification before walking in the freezing cold to visit Harvard University (thanks, winter storm Stella). Flour Bakery + Cafe is a chain store in the Boston-Cambridge area. They serve cakes, pastries, sandwiches and other quick lunch items. The sticky bun,…

I’m trying something new here. Taking a break from our regular programming, I want to share with you some photos of places I visited during the trip. Hope you like it.

I noticed something recently about Vancouverites. Whenever the weather gets particularly chilly, raining and biting, we tend to swarm to our favorite ramen/pho place. Something about a hot, steaming bowl of noodles just comforts the soul. The weather in DC has been quite chilly recently, and being the Vancouverite that I am, I sought out…
