Around Town: De Vredespijp

I recently posted about an incredible pie ecstasy at De Vredespijp . What started out as an innocent day of vintage shopping and market wandering turned into a complete sweets overload!

I hadn't realized that I may have created a monster because "Friday Pie Day" plan needs to be taken seriously. Next time though, we'll use extra caution because an overdose of pie has proven (as much as I hate to admit) that there can be too much of a good thing. 

Sugar coma aside, their citrus cheesecake with berry compote was nothing short of fantastic. I mean really, we could't stop ourselves despite the minor disruption we caused from swooning over this slice of cheesecake. It was zesty and sweet + creamy and crunchy...basically an amazing moment...

Until Tahlia, who was also hopped up on sugar, decided to ignore my advice and ordered a second slice. We gorged a few bites and then finally had to admit defeat, pack up the pie, hop on our bikes and take a nap. But, now that I've had a week to detox with lots and lots of yoga, I'm just about ready to hit up this place again. Or, I might need to join some kind of pie obsessed therapy group but that doesn't seam like nearly as much fun!



Follow these three steps if you wanna fall into a sugar coma...

First: Dark chocolate hot cocoa with a shot of hazelnut.
Imagine nutella melted in a cup with whipped cream on top!



Second: Throw in another slice of citrus cheesecake with berries


Third: Take a few bites of Tahlia's choice, apple crumble with currents and nuts. A great pick, but the cheesecake really well, took the cake! (Sorry, I can't resist a good pun).


This cafe also had a nice collection of furniture, random vintage knickknacks and lots of cool light fixtures. All of which we meant to explore but then the sugar kicked in and took over.
I guess that's just another reason to go back for round two!
