a morning in red hook

Emily and I decided to spend a few hours together the other morning and we drove out to Red Hook.  Always fun to explore a new neighborhood.  There is something about Red Hook.  It feels like a deserted beach town at this time of the year but there is a serious strong community. We actually have an investment in Red Hook, Cacao Prietro so I know Red Hook. 

Fortdefiance
We started out at Fort Defiance for a cappuccino.  Super cute cafe with old school flowers on the table for decor.

Scones
I have to say I am a huge fan of irish soda bread.  The rye seeds really made it. We also had a scone.

Baked
Afterward we walked around the few blocks that most of the stores are on.  Baked is the key to the area.  What an amazing bakery.  Not only are their baked goods out of this world but they sell homemade granola, chocolates and other goodies.  Love this place.

Lgihts
The two places we wanted to check out were not open.  Pelle Designs had really cool lights and I did check out their website when we got back. They sell on Etsy too!

Pies
We drove over to the Key Lime pie place.  They only make key lime pies.  You have to love that.

Mexican
Total Mexican vibe in the pie place.

We brought back a serious amount of goodies.  How can any one keep a slim figure in this house?
