American Cupcake



This was quite a random find for my husband and I.  Some of my best and most favorite foodie finds actually come from just walking down a street.  Somehow, these shops just make its way into my peripheral taste bud vision.  This establishment seems to be purely a dessert place, but when you sit down, you find that there's actually a deliciously adventurous drink menu as well as modernized american classics like PB & J or mac n cheese.  Now I know that sounds so unenthused.  Why would you ever spend money for such things that you can make at home!?? BUT, no... they have their own twists on these classics that are hard to replicate on your own.  The website mentions that it's a Bakery, Restaurant, and Carnival lounge.  So random, right?  It works though, and my husband and I had a nice little surprising treat for trying it.

When I went, I ordered "the Pixie."  Which is a sparkling wine cocktail garnished and flavored with pixie stix.  It was delicious.  


The lighting from the lounge casted a nice, funky glow over the drink.  

My husband ordered a PB&J sandwich that was garnished with bananas, organic honey, and bacon.  It came in house made bread.  He took one bite and I swear he sounded like he was having a taste bud orgasm.  It was delicious!  We also ordered the fries as an appetizer which were also quite good.

I'm glad that we randomly found this restaurant.  What about you?  Are you the type who does research on a place before trying? Or do you try things on a whim?  Or are you like me and have what I call the "cute peripheral vision" - the kind that gravitates you towards cute-looking establishments?  Maybe something else?

    1. Yeah, the drink was great. although needed more of a spike for my liking. If you ever get a chance to check it out, order the "party crasher" - it has soju and gives just the right amount of alcohol :)

  2. Sounds DELICIOUS! I don't usually do any research, but if I go on a trip, I let my friends do the research for me :p or if they know that place well, they usually know the best places to go and grab a bite/drink :)
