I like mornings in E. Cambridge. Deliveries at Fernandes Fish Market, the bustle at the hardware store and day laborers outside of Casal hoping to pick up a bit of work.
The bakery is a great stop on the way home from an early bike ride. I LOVE their cappuccinos - not traditional, but like a beverage comfort food: creamy and rich. Certainly made with whole milk, and perhaps (I fear) even with half and half?? I really should pay attention one of these times. Sugar? Ask for just one or none, otherwise your teeth may later fall out of your head. Cinammon and cocoa? Sure!
Just an FYI: Lupitas (Somerville) got a Best of Boston award and it was very BUSY last night - a good 15 people or so when we were there at 9:15. Interesting that they had notes of congratulations from the staff at Via Matta and Radius. Tacos and quesadilla were as good as ever.
