I accept your dare!!

Rachel, over at Elephantine, proposed a challenge!  The challenge was to find a cafe or bakery you’ve never been to, treat yourself to a snack and snap a couple of photos while you’re there.  Try to get these 3 photos: the signage/storefront, the food on display, and a close-up of whatever you order.

I decided to go to the Turtle Bread Company in south Minneapolis for a little birthday indulgence.  My birthday is June 18th, so this post is a long time coming :).  I tried their Opera Cake.  It was heavenly.  I love cake and it was the perfect slice of birthday cake!!

I really enjoyed this challenge, so I might just have to do this again!  What are your favorite cafes and/or bakeries?
