We found a great little bakery for breakfast in Mission Beach, which is pretty easy because there are so many good breakfast lunch places close to the Catamaran Hotel.
This one had BIG warm Cinnamon Bun’s! It was my wonderful friend’s b-day and this is how we started the day, walking down in the sunshine to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. Thoughts of snow and cold well behind us.
The cute little cafe (if you look closely you can see my extremely white Canadian winter legs reflected in the window):
Warm cinnamon bun with LOTS of icing and a latte (which comes with two chocolate covered espresso beans!):
So good and gave us the energy we needed for a lovely long walk along the beach and some shopping at a little market. Where my friend picked up the cutest striped shirt as a birthday present for herself, those are usually the best!
Then for lunch we went to a little taco stand for some outstanding fish tacos. So good! Also returned to have a beef burrito and again for chili rellenos. It was pretty much right next to the hotel, really good and cheap!
Wandering around one gets hungry and I found a wonderful little place to stop and relax for a bit.
Coffee or ice-cream? I love both so I went for the coffee, macadamia nut ice-cream:
It was SO good, creamy, coffee and bits of I think macadamia nut brittle. I almost went back for seconds. Also this was the beautiful view of the Ship from the little table I sat at. Ice-cream, sunshine and a great view, life doesn’t get much better.
After a long day at Angkor Wat and being scolded by a monkey, I was hoping the next day would start off better. With no monkey’s or people hissing at me.
It did, we went to a wonderful little cafe and I ordered a latte. I love a latte in the morning and when it looks like this I love it even more:
I have a crappy day full of meetings but I’ll be thinking of the gorgeous flower latte I had in Siem Reap:
I love this picture, it was taken at sunrise. The reason I love it is that it is beautiful but in my mind I can still here the monks chanting their morning prayer and a little guy behind me informing everybody that he was selling coffee. Mixed with the beautiful chanting of the monks was a voice yelling “Coffee ….. Coffee …… Coooooffffeeee…..”
In a strange way the two blended together and I also wanted a coffee, so really the moment was perfection.
