Seattle Morning

Hi, friends!

I woke up to the fuzzy face of a cutie-pie Golden Retriever this morning. Brody is the sweetest pup!

Once we got out of bed, Mal and I took a quick trip to Caffe Ladro for iced coffees. The last time we were in Seattle a few years ago, we fell in love with their coffee, so it was a priority to visit this morning.

I added soy milk to my iced coffee. The coffee at Caffe Ladro is so flavorful and strong. Love it!

For breakfast, we had eggs, toast, and fruit.

The toast, in particular, was killer good! The Powerseed variety that I ate this morning had 6g of protein and 6g of fiber in one slice– and it’s really delicious.

Off to Mount Baker!

P.S. We went to dinner at Tamarind Tree last night and it was fantastic. My photos didn’t come out because of the dim lighting, but if you like Vietnamese food, definitely go there. I highly recommend it!

  1. Hi Tina! I live in Seattle, so it’s great to see you’re making the most of your trip and going to the Mt.! What did you have at Tamarind Tree?

      1. @Tina: I also live in Seattle, and love Tamarind Tree. 🙂 Also recommend Green Leaf in the ID… and last, but not least, I tried a place on Aurora Ave N (totally off the beaten path) and was pleasantly surprised by the hole-in-the-wall Mekong Village. Have fun at Mt. Baker!

  2. Small, local coffee places are always so alluring! The baristas always seem so down to earth and have the best recommendations 🙂

    P.S. Arnold’s new “Health-full” breads are filled with protein, fiber, etc. and taste really good! My fiance is hooked and only asks me to buy that brand now 😛

  3. Welcome to the rain! I guess the good news that should mean its dumping up in the mountains! I have been to Tamarind Tree once and loved it! Thanks for the reminder to check it out again.

  4. Yeah! Dave’s Killer Bread! We eat their spelt bread which is easier on gluten sensitive stomachs. The company has a great story. Welcome to the Pacific NW! The rains came back (we had a super dry Dec.) so you should have plenty of beautiful fresh snow.

    (Sidenote: I think it’s hilarious you guys brought your iced coffee drinking ways to the Pacific NW. My best friend lives in Boston now and when I visited we couldn’t get over how everyone there drinks iced coffee all winter!)

  5. Just say “no” to bread on drugs. Love it!

    P.S. Brody is super cute! It is always nice when you are away from home and missing your dog to have another wet nose to love on.

  6. So Daves bread is awesome! apparently he was a criminal, went to prison, and learned to bake, and now that he’s out he makes killer bread!

    You hit up some of my favorite places in Seattle. I love Tamrind Tree, and Seattle’s coffee soooo good

  7. Have fun at Mt. Baker!! I LOVE Bellingham – and if you get a chance you should definitely go to Boundry Bay!!! Their Scotch Ale is my absolute favorite – even served it at our wedding 🙂
