Sharing Things To Do Around Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Issaquah, Sammamish and Woodinville

Day 5 of 365 Things To Do Around the Eastside: OMG – Bacon & Doughnuts!!! Frost is the Place!

“Doughnuts Evolved”

is the way the people at Frost Doughnuts in Mill Creek Town Center describe their doughnuts.  I have been making the trip to Mill Creek almost weekly just to get doughnuts!

These aren’t what you would find at Krispy Kreme, Safeway or Dunkin’ Donuts. These are carefully created tempting taste explosion. Every day they rotate through their selection of wonderful doughnuts.

Some of their creation include:

Bourbon Caramel Pecan

Bourbon Caramel Pecan

Homemade caramel made with top-shelf reserve bourbon tops a moist vanilla cake doughnut before it is rolled in fresh chopped pecans.

Marcona Almond & Tart Cherry Bismarck

Marcona Almond & Tart Cherry Bismarck

Our fresh raised bismarck is filled with tart almond-scented cherries and glazed with our own amaretto icing. Asprinkle of Spanish Marcona almonds completes the masterpiece.

The Pink Lady Frost

Elegant and refined. Our moist chocolate cake doughnut receives a crown of pink strawberry buttercream before it’s dusted with pink sanding sugar.

Smokey Bacon Maple Bar

This is the whole reason I go to Frost!!! It is AMAZING!!! The ultimate salty/smokey/sweet combination. We take maple bacon made fresh daily and add it to our delicious maple bar. Skeptical? Try it and you’ll be a believer!

Day 4 of 365 Things To Do Around the Eastside: Monday Morning Jolt with Caffe Ladro

First of, FULL DISCLAIMER ~ I have gotten 100’s of free coffees from CaffeLadro over the past 10 years, that being said, It is an AWESOME place to get your CAFFEINE BUZZ and a Tasty Treat to eat as well.

Caffe Lardo Seattle

One of the Best Places for Esspresso on the Eastside

I used to go to the Caffe Ladro on Union St downtown Seattle a couple of times a day. After I no longer worked in DT Seattle I would only be able to have my Jumbo Quad Shot, Extra Chocolate, 2 Sweet & Lows with Whip Mocha occasionally.

Thank the Java Gods that Caffe Lardo has now opened several locations on the Eastside. I have been to them all and each one is just as awesome as the others.

The Barista’s know how to pull a RICH SHOT of ESPRESSO. They also can do a great job with the FOAM. If you ask nicely they might even do some foam art for you!

Caffe Ladro Coffe & Bakery

Tasty Treats in the Bakery

Not only can you get a great espresso drink you can try an amazing selection from their own bakery! My 2 faves are the Pecan Pie Tarts and the Grab n Go Quiche Cups (variety of flavors).

Starting your week with a Strong Quad Shot of Espresso and something from the bakery case is sure to make Monday’s much more enjoyable.

You can also almost totally avoid going into the office by using the free WiFi and Ladro.
