A Sweet Slice
When you live in one place for a long time, you eventually return to long-forgotten old haunts; reminisce and wonder why you don’t visit often.
I can’t recall the last time I went to that little place on Main where I discovered pan de sal.
Or True Confections, the quaint dessert cafÃ© on Denman, it seems to be the only place that’s been around as long as I’ve lived here.
It’s only a few blocks from home, but I haven’t been there for so long it might as well be another town…
I’ve had fond late night conversations over tea and mouth-watering desserts there, but that was a long time ago.
We got True Confections gift-certificates over the holidays; it was a little like getting together with an old acquaintance, like old times.
I had tea and a slice of cheesecake to go, a dreamy thick yet delicate berry cheesecake served with luscious berry sauce.
Oh yeah, it’s just like old times!
