Summer Kitchen.

It's far from summer here in the Bay Area but over the weekend, Chris took me to a lovely and delicious restaurant/bakeshop called Summer Kitchen in Berkeley. It was the perfect treat for a cool and sunny day and was a kick start to an amazing week of celebrating our love (in lieu of Valentine's Day which we believe shouldn't only be celebrated on one day but EVERY day). We each ordered a delectable sandwich - fried chicken for me and a burger for him. Then we super indulged on one of their sweet treats and opted for a rasberry-filled cupcake with  french vanilla frosting. With their extensive menu options and adorable decor, this is definitely a place we plan on frequenting and bringing our visiting guests to for a lovely lunch or dinner. They also sell a wide variety of Blue Bottle Coffee (by the bag!), Blue Chair and Inna Jams, we'll be taking some of Summer Kitchen home with us. Afterward, we took a lovely stroll along College Ave. (my new favorite street in Berkeley), bought some Girl Scout cookies (it's that time of year!) and did a little window shopping at the cute little boutiques (and Jeremy's Department Store!) that line the street. We definitely heart Berkeley more each day!

Summer Kitchen, Berkeley.
