Rialto Cafe

I recently had brunch with one of my nearest and dearest friends at the cutest little cafe in downtown Fullerton. I love brunch and I love cute cafes and Rialto Cafe did not disappoint. The food is delish and how can you not enjoy eating at a table with a seahorse base! I have pipe dreams of owning a coffee shop, bar, cafe, hotel/motel, the list goes on and on…if I did have my own a cafe, it would probably look something like Rialto.

The Breslin

I stopped in at the Breslin during my last visit to NY and I loved loved loved the interior. The Breslin is the restaurant inside the Ace Hotel, alongside Stumptown Coffee, both of which I am also a fan. All the interior work was done by Roman and Williams, a comprehensive design firm based in New York City, and I’ll just say they are very good at their job. The restaurant design is very dark, masculine, and campy, all of which made my mac ‘n cheese even more enjoyable. And you gotta love all the lacquered woodwork! The surrounding neighborhood is a little dodgy, but I suggest stopping into this diamond in the rough.
