Daily Eats New York to New Haven

7:30am breakfast with fabulous and handsome Terance Bogan. What a total delight, what a yummy treat to meet with Terance at the Hudson Hotel Cafeteria. Family style dining with lots of European attitude is the atmosphere at Cafeteria. The coffee was rich, my bagel and cream cheese served with tomato great. It was the exciting and engaging conversation with Terance … Read More

Daily Eats at Mimis Cafe

I admit I am a fan of Mimis Cafe located on Chandler Boulevard in Chandler right off the 101. I’ve been there several times and most recently this afternoon for a business lunch with Vivian Valenty.

Had traditional humus as an appetizer. They know how to make humus! … Read More

Pizza, Pizza, Pizza
