- julianna’s coffee & crepes -

there is a new crepe & coffee shop in inman park called julianna’s. it’s in the basement of a 110+ year old home and features a quant little setting for some caffeine and sweets. besides crepes, julianna’s also serves dancing goats coffee and sells local goodies, including handmade soaps from mama and local jams & jellies!

i wouldn’t say it was the best crepe i’ve ever had, but julianna’s has a super cute atmosphere and is a great option if you are craving some sweets!

- revolution doughnuts & coffee -

a new doughnut shop opened up in oakhurst called revolution doughnuts & coffee. well, it’s somewhat new, as you can tell from how little clementine is in the photos. this house of sweets can be found on college avenue next to ale yeah. they offer coffee drinks and hand-crafted doughnuts made from scratch daily using organic flour and locally sourced ingredients. their flavors are truly unique as well, including: salted caramel (with optional bacon!!!), jalapeƱo lime, blueberry, vanilla bean, orange pistachio, nutella cream puffs, banana cream pie sliders, apple fritters & more! you won’t find such flavors at dunkin donuts.

we’ve had these delicious treats a few times now! i would say they aren’t quite sublime doughnuts caliber, however they are still tasty and for the convenience, you won’t find any better near kirkwood! plus revolution was a kickstarter project, so support your local business and go try some tasty doughnuts!

- will you be mine -

happy valentine’s day! clementine loved her valentine’s balloon. she was too small to fully enjoy her last encounter, so she made the most of it this time around.

gub created some sweet home-made cards for the family and in return received flowers and treats from cacao atlanta! this included handcrafted truffles, dark chocolate peanut butter cups & muscadine cordials. yum yum!!!

be sure to stop by one of their atlanta locations or factory store for some local “bean to bar” treats and good ol’ fashioned chocolatiering! here is their boutique menu or you can purchase items from their website.

someone got into the cookie jar! as expected, clementine totally loved her delicious treat from alon’s bakery!

- summer watermelon -

although clementine was a little fearful of the ocean and sand at holden beach, she was definitely a huge fan of eating watermelon in her kiddie pool!

go figure!

- old orchard beach, maine -

another picturesque boardwalk & beach town to visit in maine is old orchard beach, which is just north of kennebunkport and york beach. there’s lots of kitchy places to explore along the boardwalk and pier; from clam shacks & pier fries to awesome souvenir and gelato/ice cream shops. the old wooden pier is really awesome as well, although it was raining during our visit so i didn’t get photos.

there is also an old fashioned beach amusement park called palace playland. it’s been open since 1902 and looks reminiscent of coney island!

we’d love to stay at a bed & breakfast or a beach cottage in old orchard beach some day!

- henri’s bakery -

have you ever been to henri’s bakery? it’s a deli & bakery in buckhead that’s been open since 1929. my sandwich didn’t knock my socks off, but the deserts looked very tasty and i loved the neon sign. i would definitely go again if i was in the area, especially to try some sweets!
