hairloom & caramel salon/cafe/home  

Lunch with Kate on the day I did something to my hair...

This cafe is adorable. It's nestled within a hair salon so look for Hairloom when trying to get to it.

The vibe is eclectic cuteness.

The salon looks nice. Might try it one day.

I had a root beer float. Serving was rather small, but root beer floats are always good.

Our pastas were very simple fare. They were not outstanding but nothing bad about them. Except the pasta could have been more al dente. Interesting choice of ingredients and flavours. I did like how mine tasted. It was the first time I had aglio olio with a strong lemon taste and it was quite refreshing. Very generous with the mentaiko too.

We shared a carrot cupcake. It was quite good although the icing could have been a little less sweet.

I love the cosy corner with the armchairs basking in the light from the glass panels.

May or may not go back for food but will definitely stop by to rest feet and have refreshments if I'm in the area.

Around here your Root Beer float is called a Black Cow. I can't stand Root Beer, so I prefer mine made with Coke. (That's just called a Coke Float).

What's the thingy in the first picture with the cherry on top?

Black Cow! LOL! I like Coke Floats too!

That is a little glass pot with a plant in it and a fake little toadstool. :D

Hah. Good thing I wasn't there--I thought it looked tasty!

I had dinner with a friend recently at a place where the cuisine was so haute that we had no idea what we were eating for most of the meal. The weirdest was some sort of...bubble...about the size of a big grape that had tea in it. You were supposed to put the whole thing in your mouth and bite down. Very strange. The whole meal was like that. Very good, but strange.

Haha! That sounds like fun! I had a similar meal too, coupla years ago. We had to ask what each dish was before eating it. In fact, I was thinking about going there again for lunch to check out the new menu!

Don't expect too much from the food though!
