Rock Edition: A Piece of Cake

A Piece of Cake

Who can pass up a sweet treat?

A Piece of CakeNot me, that's for sure.

A Piece of CakeWhen I saw "A Piece of Cake" in Rock, I had to make a stop.

A Piece of CakeThe bakery had a bit of eery dessert lining its counter: cupcakes, cookies and more.

A Piece of CakeI set my sights on a brownie, covered in chocolate and sprinkles.

A Piece of CakeHave you been here?

Fairmont Edition: The Rambling Root

Rambling RootI've previously been to The Rambling Root to enjoy dinner and drinks. But, recently, they starting brewing their very own beer and I had to get their branded growler to add to my collection.

Rambling RootWhile I was there, they had their "regular beer" which is a cream ale, as well as a Double IPA. So I went with the Regular Beer to take home. Have you had one yet?


Princeton Edition: Bucha Brewhouse & Bistro

Bucha Brewhouse

I'll admit, I'm not quite sure what to make of kombucha.

Bucha BrewhouseI've tried it elsewhere and didn't have much of a taste for it.

Bucha BrewhouseAnd, upon reading more about it, I worried if it was safe to drink.

Bucha BrewhouseFortunately, when you walk into Bucha Brewhouse & Bistro in Princeton - they tell you right off the bat what it is.

Bucha BrewhouseIt originated in China in 221 BC. It's a lightly fermented beverage made from sweet tea or coffee and a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. 

Bucha BrewhouseThe space is so neat, with the original built-ins from its past life as a clothing store.

Bucha BrewhouseI ordered the "mango" kombucha.

Bucha BrewhouseAnd, I did a half soup, half sandwich lunch.

Bucha BrewhouseHalf a grilled cheese, and half Spanish rice soup.

Princeton Edition: Slice Italian Beef & Pizza

Slice Italian Beef

A new Princeton restaurant is combining two classics: pizza and Italian beef.

Slice Italian BeefSlice Italian Beef & Pizza has your classic pies, but it also has sandwiches like the Chicago favorite Italian beef; the Elvis with banana, peanut butter and jelly; bratwurst; hot dogs; and Philly cheesesteaks.

Slice Italian BeefAfter looking over the menu, though, I had to go with a jumbo pepperoni roll.

Slice Italian BeefIt was stuffed with cheese, with marinara on the side.


Slice Italian BeefThis is definitely a whole-meal roll.

Slice Italian BeefLook at that beauty.


Slice Italian BeefWhat do you order here?
