tea with Rose and Laura | the Duck and Bunny

This month Hillary and I decided to mix up the tea tour a little bit - we went out for brunch and invited our friend Laura along, too. The Duck & Bunny was our destination of choice, and it was a beautiful fall morning so we chose to sit outside on the patio. Sitting outside always makes me feel better with a toddler in tow... Ezra can climb on the chairs and jabber incessantly without it being disruptive to other diners, which is always a good thing. I ordered a personal pot of pomegranate pear tea and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was sweet and flavorful even without the addition of sugar, and the pretty pink color didn't hurt either. You should know that I'm a sucker for tea in a little teapot, too.

My meal consisted of the most delicious truffled pomme frites (better than any I had in Paris!) and brie with fig spread and pecans on multigrain bread from Olga's.

The toast points were delicious, but I could have done with another order of fries and been plenty full and perfectly happy.

Random shot, I know, but I had to share it because when I saw it I laughed - Ezra took it when he was fiddling with my camera. He has quite the eye for detail, don't you think? Like his dad :) Before you read on, don't forget to click over to read Hillary's account of our morning. 

I don't know about you, but I'm enjoying our tea tour immensely. The tea is always nice, but it's even nicer to have time set aside to spend with friends. It's so easy to get busy and complacent going about our lives, but I'm beginning to realize how important it is to make the time. Do you feel like that, too?

  1. Glad to know you went to D&B. One of old friends thought it was a strange name and had to "check" where we were sending his wife:) When I was last there with "the girls" we were sitting near the fireplace & it was snowy. Your photos show a completely diff outdoor vibe. I also want to bring MAISON COCO to your possible list for "drives" over the bridge. It's close enough to the museum - across from the Viking. If you close your eyes it feels like France. They use unusual steepers for tea and very fun big soup bowl-y cups for steamed milk lattes.

  2. The fries in the flower pot are so cute (and so is Ezra, of course)
