My Favorite Things – Lunch at Mrs. London’s Boulangerie in Saratoga Springs, NY

If you find yourself in Saratoga Springs, NY, to see the races (or attend a performance of New York City Ballet at SPAC)…

And, have a delectable array of breads, sandwiches, quiche, cookies, pastries and cakes from which to choose!

After splitting a delicious sandwich and salad today, my husband and I had room for dessert. But with two entire cases of cakes, it was hard to choose…

While I went for the lemon merengue tart.

A cup of coffee from the espresso bar was the perfect finish.

Eat here and you may feel like you died and went to heaven (or, at the very least, stepped back into another era!)

    • The breads and sandwiches are really good. My lemon merengue tarte was a bit too sweet, and my husband ate his chocolate so fast I didn’t even have a chance to try a bite. Desserts here are certainly very different from those in Portugal. Although they almost always have eggs, the egg flavor is not a predominant one.

      Queijadas are my favorite Portuguese dessert. What’s yours?

    • Hi Linda,

      Thanks for stopping by and for your nice comment on my blog! I checked out your lovely shop on Etsy and added you to my “circle” there (http://www.joanamiranda.etsy.com) Since I’m not able to produce jewelry anymore due to my new living situation in NYC, I’m in the process of selling off the last of my inventory. For that reason, a website exchange doesn’t make sense right now.

      I hope you’ll continue to check into my blog now and then and I wish you all good luck with your jewelry sales!

      Joana
