Review: Destination Donuts

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Review: Destination Donuts

Restaurant Review: Red Velvet Cafe

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Red Velvet Cafe

The cupcakes and coffee are probably the headliners at Red Velvet Café, but the sandwiches deserve a bigger chunk of the spotlight. That’s no slam on the cupcakes, not at all. In fact, the house cupcakes are devastatingly gorgeous and delish. It’s easy to get distracted by the sweets –and we’ll get to a discussion […]
