You can’t start the morning without coffee so I ordered some and used some cream.

As we waited for our food, I took the time to take some pictures of the interior. I really like this Coffee Break artwork. It motivated me to draw something like this myself and frame it!

What to choose, what to choose. I really wanted waffles. And pancakes. Ooo, crepes!? I had to decide on something and I’ve been meaning to try the Dutch Baby for the longest since I heard about it.

Look at my beautiful Dutch Baby! Everyone was eyeballing it when it was delivered to me. The Dutch Baby is a German pancake which is oven baked and served with powdered sugar, lemon wedges to squeeze on the pancake, and butter. This pancake is unique because it is baked and forms a crater.

I had to eat it quick before it starts to deflate. It kept its shape for a good while as I took pictures of it.

When I saw this German pancake, I expected a crispy light bite, but it was not what I expected.

I took a slice out of the Dutch Baby and the cake was more moist than I expected compared to the American pancake. It consists of just flour, eggs, and milk. Simple.  I was happy I was able to finally experience eating a Dutch Baby.
