I met my sister for brunch and some coffee on a Saturday afternoon. We ordered the Shakshouka, the one thing everybody on yelp was raving about. No surprise, it was delicious, a perfect combo of tomato, eggs, and a blend of seasonal vegetables. Along with the Shakshouka came slices of french bread. If you find yourself short of bread, don’t be shy to ask for some extra.
However, the true star of the show was the Nutella Panini. Naomi who normally has an almost non-existing craving for sweets was blown away by this sandwich. This is a sweet treat that comes with two slices of soft fluffy bread, and slathered between you’ll find nutella, sliced bananas, and fresh strawberries. It’s the thick slices of crisp, freshly toasted bread with a sprinkle of powdered sugar that sets it apart from any other Nutella sandwich out there. A perfect alternative to pancakes or french toast, if you are craving something sweet in the morning.
