{Sweet Treats} Dots Cupcakes, Old Town Pasadena, CA

Dots Cupcakes is hands-down my favorite cupcake shop this side of the prime meridian. If you’re ever in Pasadena, do yourself a merry little favor and pick up a box of their perfectly proportioned cupcakes. They come in regular or mini, so you can go all-out or opt for a guilt-free mini to satisfy your sweet tooth. In addition to their regular flavors (favorite: Red Velvet), they have the tastiest seasonal flavors too, like the Snowflake (pictured above), which is a vanilla cupcake topped with toasted coconut and filled with condensed milk. 

All I want for Christmas is more Dots cupcakes!

{Man’s Best Friend} Three Dog Bakery, Old Town Pasadena, CA
This past week, I picked up some treats for my little pup at Three Dog Bakery. Pictured above are the Pupcakes and Ruffles, which in addition to having the punniest names, also feature all-natural, good-for-your-pooch ingredients. Unfortunately, my dog is a super picky eater and didn’t really like them…but I can’t really say for myself if the treats are good or not. Maybe I should be daring and try one? Talk about a real foodie adventure.

{Restaurant Review} Father Nature’s Lavash Wraps, Old Town Pasadena, CA
Father Nature’s Lavash Wraps is a little hole-in-the wall cafe in Old Town Pasadena serving an impressive array of Greek/Mediterranean wraps made with lavash, a type of thin flatbread. They serve various types of veggie wraps, falafel wraps, chicken wraps, sandwiches and salads, featuring all sorts of unique flavors. I had ”The French Connection” wrap, which included grilled zucchini, grilled onion, red and green bell pepper, eggplant, feta cheese, pepper and garlic sauce spread. It tasted very healthy and flavorful and was definitely a welcome break from the ordinary wrap scene. For a reasonable price compared to some of the nicer sit-down places in Old Town, I’d definitely recommend Father Nature if you’re in the area and looking for a bite to eat.
