I remember seeing the passing cars and hearing them as they zoomed by. With the laughter and chatter of the people all around me, I hear the happy sounds:
“Welcome to the The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker, for how many today?" “Table for three please.”
The first time I walked into The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker, I was instantly hit by the smell of the lattes they were making. Located in West Hollywood, this cafe is famous for its art lattes which include floral designs which are made by their barristas. You can also order sandwiches, sundaes, any kind of breakfast and salads.
Sitting with my two friends I remember looking at the simple yet eye catching menu of the place which is is “to die for” and thinking to myself what to eat. I remember asking the waiter: “What drink do you recommend, and what do you recommend to eat as well?” and him pointing to the The Butcher’s Eggs Benedict and telling me about their signature art latte drinks that came with vanilla, caramel, or mocha flavoring.”
Of course, being me, I had to try the best of the best, that was being recommended to me. Especially since the waiter specifically said “Everyone gets this, you can't go wrong.”
As we waited in the homey yet rustic/modern appeal outdoor seating area I could see different customers receiving there place and thinking to my self “I NEED MY FOOD NOW.” Just looking at the food made my mouth water and make my stomach growl.
Seeing the waiter walking with the three of the vanilla lattes and the three eggs benedict made my stomach very happy. I am a food lover, so any type of food makes me happy as long as I can eat it. Seeing the green, orange, yellow, red, and blue colors mixed to make a flower design in the latte cup had me so amazed and made me not want to take a sip of the coffee because of how adorable it looked. However, taking that sip was worth messing up that flower because that latte was amazing. Then there was the eggs benedict, WOW DON’T GET ME STARTED ON THAT. Mine consisted of a buttermilk biscuit, avocado, egg, and the amazing hollandaise sauce to top it off, with a side of house potatoes. The flavor was oh so amazing and mouth watering taste was everlasting. With each bite I was able to taste all the incredible taste.
The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker from beginning to end was an amazing experience. This has became my new spot to go eat at when I’m in West Hollywood.
