I distinctly remember multiple conversations with my oldest claiming that “the only cheesecake” she likes is my goat cheese cheesecake. I don’t blame her, it’s amazing, but today when I brought home a chocolate peanut butter cheesecake from Sweet Sue’s, I didn’t expect her to eat the whole thing either.
“I thought you didn’t like cheesecake?!!?”
“I hadn’t tried this one.”
I ‘d also brought home an eclair (my favorite) and a red velvet cupcake (devoured quickly by a 9-year-old). Ah, the eclair. I should have eaten it at Sweet Sue’s, where I could have had it with one of their delicious cups of coffee, but I was too full after my healthy mandarin chicken wrap.
It was a simple lunch. An overstuffed wrap with chicken, crispy Asian noodles, and nearly too much lettuce, but I won’t complain. That abundance of green help justify the desserts I brought home to sample. Though Sweet Sue’s has cakes and scones, muffins, cupcakes, and cinnamon roles, that signature eclair is heavenly. Impossible to cut without making a mess, it is clearly meant not to be shared though even the mini eclairs are large enough for two.
After living here for nearly 2 years, I may have just finally found my coffee home-away-from-home.
