We went home; unpacked and it's already 11 at night. Time to sleep because we're both going to work the following day.
Wicked Cafe Breakfast After a surprisingly good night sleep, we're up and ready to go back to work. However, our fridge is empty, and we have no food for breakfast. Instead, we decided to have breakfast in a cafe which we always walked by on our way to work.
Wicked Cafe (7th and Hemlock) For breakfast, I decided to have vegetarian pie (which feels like a vegetarian lasagna) and vegetaria…
