I can’t wait for Spring. But alas that won’t be happening for awhile. So to pass time while I wait, I will continue wandering trying new things.
Today I went to Omi’s coffee shop that moved to South Portland. They have yummy homemade poptarts! I wish I had ventured upstairs to check out the seating upstairs.
I went back to Portland and checked out Flea for All on Congress Street that sells antiques and unique finds. I feel like most of the places I’ve been going to have all moved location and I’m checking out the place again like it’s new to me. I liked looking at all the cool things.
The highlight of my day was visiting the Portland Museum of Art. They had an art in bloom series where local florist did arrangements based on artwork. I thought it was cool to see and something free to do on a Friday. I realized I hadn’t been in awhile and was fun to check out all four floors. On the fourth floor there were wood carvings done by Bernard Langlais, an artist from Maine. I’ve always admired his work so that was a treat to see.
On Monday I ventured out to check out a new coffee place in Portland called the The Proper Cup Coffeehouse. It was a nice coffeehouse that was comfortable to hang out in. I tried an iced latte and hung out reading a book. They have baked goods and WiFi too. I hope they have great success and becomes a regular hangout for locals.
Despite the cold I went to Portland today to check out places I’ve never been. I like to explore and try new places. Maybe it will become a favorite.
My first stop was at Little Woodfords on Forest Avenue. The avocado toast was delicious.
Belleville on North Street offers pizza and croissants. I tried the spinach and artichoke. I will have to go back to try one of their croissants.
After some walking around I went to the Portland Public Market to get a chicken arepa that I enjoyed at home from Maiz.
Before I drove home I made a quick stop at Two Fat Cats Bakery and grabbed myself a treat. I was happy I got to cross off a few places off my list of places to check out.
Today I left the house despite the cold weather and got myself a cappuccino with Oatly oat milk from Sweden at Bard Coffee in Portland. I always like how pretty these drinks are. It was good so I’m sure I’ll be back soon.
