3 Dog Café and Yada Yarns…

We went to 3 Dog Café this morning as predicted. There’s a counter all along the rail of their front porch, with little stools to sit on in the sun while you refuel and WTWGB. There wasn’t a lot of foot traffic on the sidewalk, but there were a lot of people coming in for their caffeine fix, so Max got to be the porch greeter.

I have to say their latté is the best I’ve had in 300 miles – or maybe even more! They serve it in a French bistro glass, with a lump of raw sugar, so you can see the crema. I also had one of their homemade pop tarts – which is like no pop tart ever! A delicate flaky crust with blueberry filling and sprinkled with sugar before it’s baked made this the most delicate confection you can imagine.

After I had eaten the whole thing – and consumed every drop of latté, scooping up the foam with the little spoon – I realized I didn’t take any photos! Oh well, that means I MUST go back tomorrow. Can’t disappoint my followers…

The pop tart was served on the most beautiful little handmade plate – terra cotta with a fabulous orange glaze – and it turns out to be made by Suzie who owns Yada Yarns, just down the block. So, we headed on over and I had a great little shopping spree. A small plate, a cool little cup, and a couple of heart-shaped pins made from the hoods of old trucks rounded out the morning.

We tried to find the walking path along the creek, but ended up talking with young couple living in the bush near the trail… Donna and Donny were camping out there with their little black Chihuahua/mix, Pixie, and a cat named Nahla. While I talked with them, Pixie and Max tore around us through the underbrush and around the gravel road. Max looked like a Percheron compared to little Pixie! Nahla, on the other hand, let him know right away – in that assertive way that only cats can manage – that she was NOT going to play. Or let him come close…

No pictures this morning – but it is another perfect day in Paradise, if you can call the desert Southwest such a name. I’m falling in love with this little town…
