The Food Diaries: Sugar Mama's Bakeshop

Hannah and I love food, it is probably why we are such besties. We went out a few weeks ago and then we wanted to go somewhere for dessert. We were thinking of going to a gelato place on South 1st but then we scrolled up and saw Sugar Mama's Bakeshop {a Cupcake Wars winner}...so did we waste our time with gelato? NO! We went to the bakery!

First of all, it is adorable inside.

They have all different delicious treats including cupcakes, cakes, brownies, and macarons.

Of course I had to try a cupcake--"Mama Loves You" which was Lavender Chocolate and was fabulous. The chocolate was moist and the icing was creamy and you could taste the lavender which complimented the chocolate to perfection.

That is a face of extreme happiness {notice my iPhone camera open on the left, always photographing food}.

Then...Hannah and I saw this "s'mores bar" in the window and decided it was a necessity. I couldn't finish all of my treats so I ate a few bites and then took the rest home and had it the next morning for breakfast. Let me just say, it was mouthwatering. It was fabulous. And if you go there, you must get one of these bad boys.

Hannah had a--Southern Belle--red velvet cupcake and a lemon bar. I tried her lemon bar and it was FABULOUS. The lemon was extremely tart {the way I like it} and the bottom was a delicious crumbly sugar cookie. Hannah said, "Oh my! It was cute and had too many delicious options to choose from. My red velvet cupcake was absolutely delicious. The cream cheese icing was thick and creamy. And the red velvet cake was super moist and delicious. The lemon bar had a thick and delicious sugar cookie crust with a scrumptious layer of lemon goodness!"

As y'all probably know, I am a member of the Her Campus Blogger Network {I even work as a moderator & beta tester}. HC has launched an amazing search for 22 women under 22 who are the most inspiring college women. If you think you are an ambitious, talented, and big-thinking woman {and you're obviously a Haute Table girl so of course you are} I would highly encourage you to apply!

The Food Diaries: Elizabeth Street Cafe

In case you could not tell from my Instagram, brunching has become a serious past time of mine {especially with my brunching buddy, Hannah}. Anyways, Elizabeth Street Cafe had fascinated me for a while because, well I mean look at it, it's so cute! However, I was a little concerned about "bang mi" because I had never 1) heard of such a thing 2) tried anything like that {I know, I am clearly not very adventurous!}. But I saw they had a breakfast menu so Hannah & I trekked over to South 1st Street to check it out.

When we got there the patio was full of people {I am jealous of them} so we sat inside {which turned out to be adorable}. 

I was seriously loving the colorful menu as it went perfectly with my Lilly case.

And GINGAM! I mean it is like the place knew me.

Can we talk about the font?

Elizabeth Street is in an old {or is it new?} house and it feels incredibly welcoming when you are seated in the turquoise chairs.

The water came in these adorable glasses, and they had matching pitchers!

This cafe au lait was honestly the best I have had in Austin.

Hannah had the House Baked Brioche French Toast. "My French toast was amazing. It was cooked to perfection and had a delicious sauce/glaze over it. The bread was thick and delicious. And the ice cream on top made it even better! Overall a really good meal!!"

Meanwhile I tried the Breakfast Banh Mi {I know I tried it!!!} with scrambled farm eggs and ginger pork sausage. It was mouthwateringly delicious. The bread itself was phenomenal and the ginger sausage lit my still asleep pallet up. I was seriously impressed {and very full} upon completion of the breakfast sandwich. I am looking forward to going back and trying more on their menu aside from the breakfast foods.

We finished painting my new apartment {I AM SO EXCITED TO DECORATE WITH YALL} and I flew home {so happy to be back in the sunshine state}. It has been nice to relax, eat good food, and be with my family. How was y'all's week? -xoxo darling, Hayden
