Blue Dahlia Bistro


It is Sunday, so of course I was off to a lazy, late start to my day.  Lucky for me, Blue Dahlia Bistro serves breakfast all day.  I couldn’t pass up the “French Crepes w/ Vermont maple syrup & Ghirardelli chocolate sauce and berries.”  And to add to my chocolate fix for the day, I slurped down the Peppermint Mocha.  The restaurant is located on a small hill on the East side of Downtown Austin and there is a nice view of the Capitol Dome from this area.  There is a patio on the front and the back of the restaurant, and today there was a cool accordion player to set a nice, relaxing mood.  Check it out if you get the chance.



Jean Philippe Patisserie


Ever had the desire to see the world’s largest chocolate fountain? You can find it at Jean Philippe Patisserie in the Bellagio. They have snacks, drinks, desserts, and of course – lots of chocolate. They have cakes on display of all sorts and my favorite one was Olaf sitting in the top corner of the restaurant. I ordered a large white mocha and slurped it down on my way to my next Las Vegas destination.
