Crema

A few weeks ago, David and a friend and I biked to a cafe about a mile and a half from our house, called Crema. We had brunch on their uber-charming patio, and then, because it was so irresistible, we had some homemade ice cream from their impressive display. Since then, David and I have been back there twice for frozen treats.

Tonight, we stopped in after dinner at the Minnow. We shared a triple scoop(!): strawberry basil sorbet, topped, at the scooper's recommendation, with banana ice cream and pineapple mango basil sorbet. It was amazing. I'm not a huge banana fan, but the ice cream tasted like banana bread batter smells--buttery and creamy and delicious. The pineapple mango chaser had just the right amount of fruity tang--plus the clean, herby hint of basil.

"This place is as good as the Patisserie!" I gushed.
"It's better," David said.
"Better?" I asked.
"It's not in Walla Walla!"

When I recovered from laughing, I said, "I would blog that--but half the people who read my blog live in Walla Walla!"

David didn't care, and here I've gone and blogged it. Walla Walla people, I love you! I love your patisserie! And when you come visit me here in Mpls, I'll take you to Crema and you can judge its wonders for yourself!

We're not friends anymore.

I still love you, goddess. I think you and David need to come try the Patisserie again, just to compare. = )

We could arrange an exchange program between our two fine cities, maybe?

Ted, I hope you can forgive me.

Heather, I'm glad you still love me, and the Patisserie is definitely on the itinerary for the October trip!

And Chelsey, I love it: instead of exchange students, exchange desserts! There's a program with potential...

Heavens, I just visited the Patisserie (on my first visit to Walla Walla in seven years) and I'm having a hard time envisioning something better. Lucky! P.S. I'm currently reading two of the three books you are. Dissertation writing?

Hi, BlueMuse! It's true: the Patisserie is absolutely divine--definitely a must for W2 visits!

And my "currently reading" section is hideously out of date, since I switched over to GoodReads... I clearly need to update it. But, yes, I am writing a dissertation. Which of the books are you reading?
