Weekly Favs

Near my office in Oakland is a fun little spot called MUA.  We had mussels and fries which I was a bit scared to try as I had never had them before but I was pleasantly surprised it was really good. In addition to the mussels and fries we had a green bean sandwich .. sounds strange but it was delectable. Their beer selection on tap was soso but I was pleasantly surprised with their bottled beer selection. The cream stout I had was delicious and maybe a tad too much for a lunchtime drink ;).IMG_4049 IMG_4050 IMG_4052 IMG_4054While waiting at Plow we walked around for some exercise and look at this cute bench we found halfway up the hill. I imagine it comes in handy when walking up the hill with groceries in hand.
IMG_4060 Do I have too many favorite places… probably. Plow is famed for being one of the best brunches in the city and I have to agree. The ‘Plow’ breakfast is to die for. If only I could eat this everyday. Actually scratch that.. it would be problematic. IMG_4063 IMG_4064 IMG_4065 Pumpkin Carving. YAY. I love Mickey sitting in the window.IMG_4069 IMG_4070 IMG_4079 IMG_4077 Had a chance to go to Hollow over the weekend when I was out with Mickey on a walk and it was so delicious. I can’t wait to go back.IMG_4080 IMG_4081 IMG_4082 A batch of Pumpkin Brownies to take the sting out of Monday.

Brews, Foods and Views.

Breakfast at Cafe Reverie in Cole Valley. Almost made a work day feel like a weekend.

IMG_9862Sunday morning breakfast after a spin class. At first I hated spin but I have really grown to love the intense sweat sesh it brings. Maybe one day I will get out on a real bike!

IMG_0064Brunch at Elmwood Cafe in Berkeley.  Everything I have tried here has been amazing!  Double mocha, coconut scone with lime curd, pear coffee cake, lemon waffle with blueberries and curd, poached egg sandwich and quiche.

IMG_0023A tasting at the Torpedo Room. Always new brews to try and enjoy.

IMG_0027 Sometimes San Francisco can be so peaceful. My friend is lucky to have this as her daily view!
