Exploring Madrona

In Madrona for the evening: my Community Group is meeting for coffee at Vérité Coffee, home of the amazing Cupcake Royale bakery. Can't go wrong there. Just can't.

This is my first time in the Madrona neighborhood, which is odd considering it's just a couple dozen blocks from the office. Unusual vibe here—very upscale urban renewal. From here at the Madrona Eatery and Ale House, I'm picking up no less than six wireless networks. It seems like an easy neighborhood to fall in love with, and the salmon and fresh herbed risotto I just had for dinner was divine (and based on the check, it needed to be).

In addition to enjoying the neighborhood, I just plain love exploring. So fun to look with anticipation and wonder around every corner. I think I'll be back.

Ooo .. I love Madrona. Those huge old homes. Close to the lake. I'm so glad you've finally made the visit.
I enjoyed it a lot; definitely fired up the exploring bug.
Seattle tourism update. Yum.

Salmon and fresh herbed risotto. Double yum.
So good!
Bobo.
It's pretty Bobo. :) The only thing that kept me from categorizing it as such was that lots of residents didn't seem to be in the highly educated demographic. But yeah, it's pretty Bobo.
how did you get those little thingies above the 'e' in Verite?

Also, the cupcakes sound like they would be a nice edition to my morning right now. Got my stomach all rumbly and stuff.
On a Mac, it's Option-E, then the desired letter. On other computers, it's yet another sign to switch.

The cupcakes are richer than my stomach could handle most mornings, but they make a great snack.
