|The Popette opening a present before every one arrives.|
Saturday arrived with rather gloomy weather; going back and forth between rain and snow. The Popette and I arrived early at the cafe. She had requested no presents or cards from anyone but before everyone got there I had her open a gift I got her. It was a book that she had recently enjoyed at our last Sunday Barnes & Noble get together. She was all ready teasing me that I was in trouble! Oh no!
|Almost everyone-- Laura, Mary the Popette, myself, and Not-So-Good; Em was taking the picture.|

Finally, we were ready to start ordering. Our server stated the wonderful specials of the day and the soups that were available too. Laura ordered first and told our server the rule was no one was allowed to change their order. We all laughed as she said that it was a good thing she was ordering first! As we got half way through with ordering she was all ready trying to add something to her order. No it wasn't a change to her order but an addition. We were all cracking up and making quite the noise. The Popette told the server to just tell us to hold it down if he needed us to.
|The big hit of the dinner was this delicious mulligatawny soup.|
Next was the wonderful torte which the server showed us all in whole and then had individual slices served to us. We all sang Happy Birthday to the Popette after we all had our slices of the torte. There was a delicious thick layer of chocolate gnache over the torte, and the chocolate dipped strawberry was juicy. That and a cup of coffee-- I was in heaven! What a wonderful way to end a birthday meal! I would highly recommend anyone out there to visit the Black Widow's Cafe.
