Lady And The Shallot

We left Philadelphia so late that Bhavna suggested that we pick up lunch. She remembered that I had a calendar entry for Lady And The Shallot, which is a vegan and gluten-free food stand in the Trenton Farmers’ Market. Owners Francesca Avitto and Kate Wnek – who are engaged to be married – were super friendly and helped us choose from the menu. We ordered Rainbow Tacos and a flatbread. We were strapped for time, so we opted to take our food home.

Update: The food is delicious. I will be back to try the other menu items.

Located in the Trenton Farmers Market, this plant-based eatery is getting its food from the farms that populate the building. You don’t get more farm-to-table than this. I mean, when the people at Pineland Farms bring their fresh veggies to the market each morning, it’s literally a 3-second walk for the owners of Lady and the Shallot to pick up most of their days selections.Jeff Edelstein in the Trentonian

Cafe Walnut

Bhavna wanted coffee. She didn’t have time for a cup this morning since we left early. I wanted to have her try La Colombe coffee, but the nearest one is several blocks away. Fortunately, we found Cafe Walnut nearby which serves La Colombe coffee.

I could see myself working from here. —

Post-radiation treatment consult with the eye doctors at Wills Eye Institute this morning. They are doing lot’s of eye test today. There is lots of gunk around my eyes from the many types of eye drops. So far the prognosis is good. Eyes are healthy. The pressure is within the normal range.
