Thanks, Steve, for the perfect finish to a wonderful meal!
I've just discoverd your blog--it's great! I'm an Episcopal priest who moved from Berkeley (a year ago) to Syracuse where I'm rector of Grace Church and chaplain at Syracuse University. But: inspired by the Bay Area bloggers I started a food blog--http://jbbsyracuse.typepad.com. After reading a few posts I'm dying to know which church you attend (I worked for CDSP and visited churches for my job--and I was assistant at All Saints in the Haight.) I used to go to both the Ferry Plaza and Berkeley Farmers' Markets EVERY saturday--I'm sure I've passed you. All the best--Jennifer
Berkeley and FP markets? I'm impressed. The FP market left me staggering (in its modern form, post building opening), although it's really quite amazing. (AND I can get my Downtown Bakery and Creamery fix without hauling up to Healdsburg.)
I'm not sure how long the alias of "St. Spike's" is going to hold, but for now I'll say that it's the big mission-style church in Berkeley immediately across the street from Cal. I've been there about a year - was at the Cathedral, but not involved there, for many years previous. It was time for a change.
And I'm a former member of All Saints' - the parish I joined when I started going to church again.
I love coffee and did a keyword search on espresso coffee and came up with your site. The association was close, anyway. Take care! Dave
