After overcoming my surprise at the overbearing amount of good human decency and in between bridesmaid duties and wedding events, I had some time to explore Northfield. And just because I left the East Coast, I had no reason to stop eating my way through town. Since all of the main points in Northfield are within a 3 block radius, I was able to hit up a bunch of local spots for overfilling my stomach, having a glass of wine, and picking up a few items to remind me of my trip.
Goodbye Blue Monday Coffee House
319 Division Street
Toffee flavored coffee...a perfect way to start the day
Hogan Brothers Acoustic Cafe
405 Division Street
While I thoroughly enjoyed my rare breakfast of coffee and donut (this is generally reserved for my 7 mornings in Aruba each year), for lunch a must is Hogan Bros. Famous for their 'Hot Hoagies' (for you tri-staters, a hoagie is also know as a sub), Hogan serves 'em up with your choice of cold cut, provolone & swiss cheese, mayo, lettuce, tomato and their signature special sauce. Of the latter, fear not; it's a delicious olive oil vinaigrette.
515 Division Street
And of course, what lunch would be complete without dessert? I headed down to Cocoa Bean, a candy and ice cream shop, where they scooped up a perfect cup of Island Fudge ice cream. It was tasty.
13 Bridge Square
Sisters Ugly, a truly fab boutique
The Popcorn Wagon
The Popcorn Wagon & me...a perfect friendship
