My best friend Linda and I were bored one weekend, she insisted that I take her somewhere new.. Because we’ve pretty much exhausted all of our eating out options in our own hometown and I’ve gotten pretty sick of always eating the same Thai food or TGIF whenever we go out..
So, I did a little research to find some cute cheap breakfast/cafe type places and came across this adorable little place called The Crema Cafe located on Main Street at Seal Beach.
We went in, had a little difficulty finding parking on Main Street because it was a weekend, but there was plenty of seating inside and out. The cashier was really patient and helpful while we took forever trying to figure out what to eat.
I ordered the breakfast crepe which was DELICIOUS and crispy but chewy. I haven’t had a good savory crepe in a while. And it came with salsa and lots of avocado which I loved.
Best friend ordered the Artichoke Chicken panini which was the favorite between the two. It was so good with sundried tomatoes and it was on whole-grain bread that was baked that morning at the actual cafe. Nice and firm but soft inside… It was perfectly panini-ed. Yummm. I love sandwiches.
After we stuffed our faces, we took a walk around the Seal Beach pier and grabbed some ice cream from Ruby’s at the end of the pier. The good thing about having a best friend like Linda is that whenever we talk, I always get thinking and end up talking a lot about life. She asks the right questions, and I always have opinions that end up surprising me because I had no idea I felt so strongly about certain topics.
We played a game we’ve been playing since high school which is always fun though.
“What kind of guy do you think I’ll marry?”
She said she imagines me with someone very clean-cut, preppy, tall, and attracts attention when he walks into a room. And then she got mad at me because I said only one word describing her future man.
HAHA. Sorry, hun, but it’s true.
Overall, a good summer afternoon. :)
