As I grow older I find more pleasure in cafes than bars that were my absolute joy while I was younger. *Thinks* This sounds like a statement my forty year old self would say, have I slowed down that much? Sigh..
I was drawn to L’auteur because of the artistry. The way wood is creatively used to make the place beautiful. I suggested it for a meeting with a friend who is like me in many ways. We were both impressed at the entrance by the appearance of the space.We rushed to the big couch for a proper chill. We ordered for tea (which is kept warm by a candle) that we sipped amidst lots of laughter before we headed over to the book section which did not have only books but magazines too (Heaven). I got soaked in a Cosmo mag and before we knew it we were hungry. I ordered a Caesar salad and Bus ordered a club sandwich with wedges. The bits and pieces of the salad were cut and severed in right proportions which is key to a well made salad. Bus enjoyed his sandwich which I would have had a portion of if not for my intolerance to gluten. I had some of his wedges that were absolutely delish. I almost forgot to mention that the music selection is en pointé.
We wound up spending over 6 hours at this cozy cafe. L’auteur is not just a cafe, it is an experience.
