On a recent overnight business trip to the north, I decided to break of out of the dinner-with-a-colleague rut and instead explore the city a little bit on my own.  After finishing up for the day, I had a great time walking up and down the quaint main street, snapping pics of flowers, ironwork and the colorful restaurant signs.

  • 1/2 shot creme brulee
  • Whipped cream
  • Caramel swirl
