Road trip to Algoma again

On Monday, Kim and I drove up to Algoma just for the heck of it. Stopped at Cafe Tlazo for a sandwich, soup, couple of beers, espresso (me) and mocha (Kim). I've mentioned Tlazo before...very nice place...relaxing decor, a good lunch menu, satisfying coffees. My espresso was good...tasty and presented in an attractive demitasse...the crema was a tad lacking, but still a very enjoyable follow-up to our meal, along with a cup of their delicious gelato. They do a nice job at Tlazo; it's become something of a "must stop" for us when traveling north along the lake and time allows.

The Havenly Inn

From there we popped in over at Shaun and Brad Schmiling's new B&B, Havenly Inn. If you've read earlier posts on here you know that the Schmilings are owners of the Von Stiehl Winery in Algoma. Shaun gave us a great tour of the B&B, complete with ghost stories... It''s a beautiful place and we intend to take advantage of it sometime soon.

Next stop on the way home was the Flying Pig, where we had another good cup of coffee and some nice conversation, while enjoying the art and garden.
