starter for lunch

starter for lunchA hot, dry, and blustery nor’wester in Hawke’s Bay today: perfect for an outdoor lunch. Well, except for the bit about the wind.

I’ve been obsessing about Bay Espresso since the beginning of the week, so that’s where we went. And it was GOOD, the food and drink, starting with that macchiato there. (We arrived before midday, hence the empty seats. It filled up soon after.)

I think I’m in love. I bought some beans to bring back to Wellington to see if they taste the same when I make coffee at home (they probably won’t, somehow).

That, and a bootload of stuff from the Farmer’s Market at the showgrounds in the morning, will be good.
