hello, im a transplant from canada (and yes it is quite cold here as well) and was wondering if you could recommend a bloody proper good cake shop where one could go and order:
a cup of espresso
a slice of cake
then proceed to consume it with great gusto and barely-there restrained utensils (keeping the other off one's plate of course). i am assuming there must be well-caked cafes and such around the university or downtown area?? i was close to order cakes from pierre hermes paris shop then thought that is kind of ridiculous.
we need to gain at least a stone before.. hm.. i say, february. cant be done without cake.
personal all-time faves are:
tres leches, opera and peanut butter-banana cake (do you guys do this here?)
