AQ Kafe Night 01-07-2009

"Princess Cake!"
Location: 1800 Broadway
Time: 7pm
People: KN and myself

Feelings: KN took me out to a new Scandinavian cafe in Columbus Circle. The service was extremely warm and welcoming, and the place had a nordic feel with its long wooden communal tables and spacious dining area. We were able to really relax and enjoy our time at the place, unrushed. KN enjoyed her turkey sandwich with jarlsberg cheese, lingonberry jam, lettuce, seeded wheat bread while I had a heavenly soft piece of Budapest cake made of hazelnut meringue, chocolate chantilly, and mandarin. I also took home a swedish birthday cake tradition that is Prinsesstårta (Princess Cake) made with sponge cake, raspberry jam and marzipan. The cake was smooth and beautiful with a marzipan exterior, and soft and creamy inside. I will be going back for another piece cake as well as to try vegetarian swedish meatballs next time!
