February Theme Day: Scene From a Coffee House

February Theme Day: Scene From a Coffee HouseMy daughter had told me about Michael Thomas Coffee some months back but I never got around to trying them till today. They roast and blend their own coffees and the one I had today was delicious. It was a dark roast and it was smooth. Being a coffee lover I will be going back.

The service was excellent, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere was eclectic, laid-back and comfortable. Their outdoor patio was warm and inviting.  Inside there were plenty of places to plug in whatever device you might be needing to plug in. A great place to just chill and enjoy your coffee.

Scooby Dooby DOOOOO

Scooby Dooby DOOOOOThis Scooby egg-mobile was also at Chocolate Dude.  I used to love Scooby when I was a kid. 

Nostalgia

NostalgiaA blast from the past …. I had so much fun looking at all this stuff at Chocolate Dude.  They had an H.R. Pufnstuf lunch box and a stuffy of the H.R. Pufnstuf character.  I have not thought about that show in a  L – O – N – G, long time.  I think my favorite on this shelf is the purple haired troll but then again the lava lamp is pretty awesome too.  Oh … who am I kidding … I loved it all.

The Candy

The CandyDon’t those apple look delicious not to mention the rest of those delectable chocolate delights. I can’t wait to go back to Chocolate Dude and try some of there confections.

Making Candy at Chocolate Dude

Making CandyThe guy with the wooden stick was making caramel and the other two folks were dipping chocolate. The aroma of the chocolate and coffee made Chocolate Dude the best smelling place in Nob Hill.

Chocolate Dude

Chocolate DudeI have driven by Chocolate Dude I don’t know how many times and each time I say, “I need to stop there and see what they are all about!” Tonight I did. The inside of the place is really neat as you will see in the coming days. I tried an Americano and was not all that all that impressed. It was a weak cup of coffee. I didn’t try the chocolate but it looks amazing and the people who worked there are quite welcoming. Maybe next time I will try some chocolate.

Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato FriesWe shared an appetizer order of Sweet Potato Fries at O’Niell’s in Nob Hill on New Years Eve.  The light colored dipping sauce is a cajun remoulade, which is deliciously spicy, and the dark sauce is an apple-cranberry, which is sweet and tart all at the same time.  And the fries are so delicious you don’t really need either.
