We wanted to check it out.  We also knew the nephew of good friends was making some of the baked goods on the menu.  daven and lauren fools and horsesWhile she prepared his Americano coffee Dave chatted with one of the Fools and Horses owners who just happens to be a former student of his. fools and horses breakfastWe found a seat in the sunny front window.  I had the poppy-seed roll and Dave a prairie apple cinnamon roll. What good coffee, delicious pastry and a great place to people watch!!

Last Sunday Breakfast

our bikesOur ritual here in Gold Canyon is that on Sunday mornings we bike to Basha’s grocery store and buy the New York Times.  The paper and accompanying magazine provide hours of excellent reading. Dave has been doing the New York Times crossword puzzle every weekend for nearly forty years and so that’s another motivation for buying the paper.

Our Sunday mornings here remind me of our Sunday mornings in Hong Kong which we spent at a place called Pacific Coffee where I read the South China Morning Post while Dave did the crossword. Our Hong Kong church congregation met in the evenings so our Sunday mornings were always free.

Breakfast at the Free Press Cafe with friends

I’m looking forward to renewing our weekend breakfast tradition in Winnipeg. On Saturday morning at 9 we walk on over to the Free Press Cafe in our neighborhood where we enjoy coffee – share a breakfast special plate and get a free paper which contains The New York Times Crossword puzzle. Then we puzzle and read for an hour or so unless we are joined by friends.

Sunday mornings in Winnipeg find us at services at Bethel Mennonite Church and I’m looking forward to getting back to that too.
