San Francisco Weekend.

I had an amazing time in SF catching up with my girls this weekend (who hasn’t moved down there??). When compared to past visits, I thought this weekend would be relatively “low key” and reflective of life in my late-twenties: good meals, girl talk and early nights.

Well, if this weekend proved anything, it’s that these trips will always center around shenanigans, despite how old we may feel. Saturday night was painful after an afternoon full of wine and sun, but the memories were well worth it :)

Breakfast.

The Corner Cafe on First Hill Seattle is a completely underrated neighborhood spot for breakfast. The spacious cafe sits on the “corner” across from the historic Sorento Hotel, joining Madison St. and Terry Ave. Based on photos from the Owner/Chef geotagged on Instagram, it’s apparent that they take pride in their food and service to patrons. If you’re ever in the area, you know what to do.

Custom omelet with broccoli and spinach (my favorite combination) and a side of sausage patty. Guilty pleasure.

Look at this gorgeous spread.

Torie hosted a beautiful Bridal Shower for Steph on Sunday, and it was the perfect afternoon of catching up, reminiscing and day dreaming of what’s to come for the Bride and Groom. Cheers to you, Steph! I can’t wait for the big day!

Breakfast at Cherry Street Coffee house. Their Falafel Salad is my all time favorite for a quick lunch or a healthy breakfast. Salad for breakfast? Yep.

My favorite Chinese vegetable is Kong Xin Cai (“empty heart” vegetable due to it’s hollow stems). Malay Satay makes a great dish with shrimp paste and garlic.
