Andersen’s Danish Bakery // Santa Barbara, CA

Oh, Santa Barbara. The food was so good. One of our favorite places was Andersen’s in downtown – amazing brunch foods and pastries.  Any place that gives you free pastries as an appetizer for brunch is a-okay in my book.

I haven’t had much of an appetite for brunch recently but revisiting these pictures is making me rethink it. (You probably wouldn’t guess from this blog, but breakfast/brunch is my least favorite meal of the day — I usually wind up getting savory lunch foods during brunches. But on the rare occasion that I get breakfast foods, it pops up on the blog. It’s just more photogenic, I guess!)

the Cheshire Cat Inn // Santa Barbara, CA

We had a small stay at the Cheshire Cat Inn in Santa Barbara earlier this summer.

It was very charming. Full of knickknacks. Great location, too.

One thing I distinctly remember during our stay here was staying up late to surf the internet and watch all the news segments about the Higgs boson. For some reason, I was obsessed with it. (Specifically, trying to figure out what it meant! It only took, like, 20 articles before I understood.) Priorities.
