Welcome to The EX Café Sun 02.26.2017
Good Morning, Pati! I couldn't sleep due to sinus infection. May I help you set up and open?
I stocked the pastry bar and cleaned the atrium!
Thomas, that would be great! The pastry bar never looked better. You have the knack.
The Cafe is open for breakfast. Let me get you a cup of your favorite morning beverage. Help yourself to the morning blogs, or chat with a friend, just say "hi" on your way out the door. It's Sunday.
Now I got the Coffee Bar stocked and ready to go! Time for my coffee! I'm drinking a hazelnut mocha with extra whipped cream! It is Sunday! What can I make for you?
Hmm, something smooth and creamy. Latte, maybe?
Here's my specialty - a Salted Caramel Latte!
Ohhh, that's good! I'm going to enjoy that with a chocolate almond biscotti. Thank you, Thomas!
Good morning all-
c2q and Thomas3.20.2010-the café looks amazing a always! I will take one of those lattes and biscotti. I hope everyone has a wonderful day! Thomas3.20.2010-hope your sinuses clear and you feel better!
Hi RachelMB. I really like a nice biscotti with this delicious latte, too. Here's some fresh ones for you. Take your pick. May I suggest the orange pistachio?

Salted Caramel Latte coming up, Rachel!
Thomas3.20.2010-thank you for the latte! It looks fabulous!
OH! I want one of those! No calories, right?
Totally virtual. Calorie free. I'll get you a couple.
Cool! I'll munch on those while finishing the juice bar!
c2q-thank you for the biscotti! It looks great!
Geez - on my off day when I could sleep in, I am wide awake at 5 AM - go figure. Oh well, maybe a nap this afternoon. Wishing everyone a great smoke-free Sunday! Isn't it wonderful to not smell like a dirty ashtray?
Good morning and happy Sunday! I just had an eyegasm over that salted caramel latte and biscotti. Yes please!
Taking the monsters strawberry picking shortly. I'll bring some back to use in some yummy recipes!
We don't have to dig around in pockets for lose change, go for the cigarette run, clean the ashtrays, scrub the goop off surfaces, detail the car, and repair the burn holes in clothes!
A nice clean Sunday and we can smell the great food cooking, the clean house, and the flowers on the coffee table. Kick back and enjoy!
Hi Jennifer_Quit_05-01-14. A Sunday afternoon nap sounds lovely to me. It's wonderful to not have people move away in the elevator because I stink of cigarette smoke, too.
Hi Nestly! I want some of those strawberries! Looking forward to what you do with those.
Quiche. what is Sunday brunch without it? While our quiche is in the oven, I decided to read up on the history of quiche. I found this nifty little website, foodreference.com, from which I quote:
Although quiche is now a classic dish of French cuisine, quiche actually originated in Germany, in the medieval kingdom of Lothringen, under German rule, and which the French later renamed Lorraine. The word ‘quiche’ is from the German ‘Kuchen’, meaning cake. ... The original ‘quiche Lorraine’ was an open pie with a filling consisting of an egg and cream custard with smoked bacon.
Let there be quiche! in about, say, 20 minutes.
Wishing everyone a hassle free stress free smoke free peaceful and relaxing day, my husband Mark cooked me a pancake breakfast again but I think I could manage another coffee just black would be great thanks.
Hi Marilyn.H.July.14.14. Really enjoyed your blog this morning. Here's your cuppa. Plain black coffee, my specialty.
Thank you Patti, delicious coffee c2q ,coffee is definitely one of your specialties.
Good morning Pati and crowd! Great to see everyone this morning. I slept in for a bit today, but now it's time for some joe & sweets. Place looks great Pati, did you see the parking sign I put out front yesterday? I wanted to make sure there was always room for me here....
The other pics are some memories of a couple of trips I've taken on my Harley while out living the dream...btw, I posted a blog yesterday The specified item was not found. blog posts. Check it out if you get a spare moment. I'm thinking about maybe a short ride today too. Sort of chilly though, I'll have to ponder on that for a bit....in the meantime, how about some of that strong coffee that you are so good at making?
Morning Pops. I must have been in the back, getting the quiche out of the oven, when you came in. Great to see you! I'm going to check out your blog in a little bit.
btw, that reserved parking sign looks great in our lot
Okay, quiche is up. This is the Quitter's Deluxe quiche. Chock full of spinach, tomatoes and potato, to help you get three nutrients that help with your quit:
vitamin C, vitamin E, and calcium. Enjoy!
and now the cafe is going self serve for a bit. Help yourselves to whatever looks good.
Good morning Pati and Thomas. I would love a cup of black coffee and a piece of dry toast, preferably oatnut bread, hahahaha. I am not too demanding, am I? I have to get to work so no time to chat, I woke up with an earache, I feel like a little kid trapped in a little old lady's body...EARACHE?
Have a great day!
Hi elvan. Earache. Yech. Hope it gets better. I am helping myself to a piece of oatmeal nut bread that Thomas just put out for you. Yummy. Plus, I am stealing that cup when You're done with it.
Oh PERFECT! I'll let you have the cup once it's empty, I need every drop of that coffee!
Sorry for the earache, Ellen! Please don't work too hard!
Good morning everyone.
I already had coffee, a small cube steak and, 2 mini croissants followed by a small piece of chocolate boston creme cake with cherry topping.
Everything in moderation. :-0
Except smoking. No SMOKING. :-)
I. would. die. for a piece of that boston creme pie.
And I like the everything in moderation except smoking line. Good one.
Morning Pati, the place is looking great as usual getting ready for Church, then make brunch for the Girls. Love how Thomas joined to help you out this morning! I do love to see teamwork in action!
Thanks, @mortalzeus. It is teamwork that makes it work, that's for sure. It's really good to see you this morning.
I hope you have a great day. Sunday brunch for the Girls takes on a whole new twist at your house, I bet. I've got a feeling that you're a brunch master.
While I'm up, I thought I put a tune on. Here's a bit of Nina in the morning.
Good morning! Woke up to another beautiful snowy day! I shall stay home today and watch the church service online. Maybe later may go out a build a snowman. Enjoyed my cup of coffee and now I think I shall have a cup of green tea.
Enjoy your day and always remember NOPE.
good morning tjanddj. It's good to hear you have plans to enjoy that beautiful snowy day you've got. I'm making you a cup of N.O.P.E. Be back in a few.
Here's the cuppa I promised tjanddj!
Pati, that's so cool the way you did that...you have to tell me how so I can do it during my Tuesday shifts from time to time....
Do which, Pops?
Good morning all,
And have a great Sunday!
Here is some of the music I grew up with...I was listening to it last night
And to stay with the theme, here are some Romanian breakfast rolls (dark and golden raisins filled)
Some cheese filled crepes
And some home made chocolate squares for Nancy...and other chocolate lovers, they might not look like much, but are really yummy (I know from having made it in the past: sugar, butter, cocoa powder, and powdered milk, vanilla and roasted hazelnut, or walnut- those last 2 are not mandatory)
Those chocolate squares! Those raisin filled rolls! You've outdone yourself again, Daniela-3-11-2016!
Okay guys. Been cafe-ing all morning. Back to the real world. Help yourself at the self service bar. And don't forget a tasty beverage for your neighbor at the next table.
