I have been checking out various coffee shops on Bainbridge and Pegasus remains at the top of the list. The Bainbridge Bakery had a good latte and a tasty quiche. They did a brisk business with the largest seating of all the shops I have been to here, and more seating outside. Yesterday I lunched at the Blackbird Bakery. Their case was nearly emptied of baked goods, so they must be good! I had a generous slice of another quiche, and a tasty latte, but seating was limited and very crowded. There IS additional seating in the courtyard of many other businesses, but it was raining heavily, and the wind gusts were quite cold.
Pegasus! Perhaps I am influenced by the mere convenience to the marina, but the atmosphere is warm, even though the fireplace has remained unlit. They have a gourmet kitchen that serves MEALS featuring local produce and meats.
On Monday I took the ferry across to Seattle. The Pike Street Market was busy, as usual. I got some mini-donuts and a Starbucks Chai tea latte, as usual. I bought a couple of small scarfs, suitable for neckware, or even hair or purse decoration, and I bought a dahlia bouquet.
