The day started with a simple Google Map search using the key word “Pie” (being National Pie Day and all)
Its results lead me down my very street- a 26 minute walk- to Aphrodite’s Cafe. They did not disappoint
I gladly let them help me with the pies.
They had all kinds – strawberry rhubarb, pecan, blueberry, mushroom, quiche, regular banana cream, cherry…
The barista brought out two slabs- one pumpkin one chocolate banana cream, and some black coffees.
I was with Duncan and Kathleen and we were able to sit outside on this lovely January day (not a thing that is possible back in St. John’s)
Duncan tried very hard to use The Force to get some pie into his smooshed face.
“I’m one with The Force. The Force is with me. I’m one with The Force. The Force is with me.”
The pies were tremendous. Well, the pumpkin one was a little mushy and borderline savoury. It could have used some whipped cream or ice cream or something of that nature. The chocolate banana cream pie was divine. Fresh bananas, real chocolate, rich yet fluffy mousse… perfection. They came garnished with some hearts made out of cinnamon. Delightful.
We polished off the two slices & coffees and then headed home where I wasted the rest of the afternoon creeping people I don’t know whatsoever on Facebook ( yes, I have it back at the present moment). A great time was had by all.
Join me tomorrow for the day I have been looking forward to the most NATIONAL BEER CAN APPRECIATION DAY!!!
