I totally should not have read your blog before dinner. Bad idea. After dinner would have been much better.
Things look pretty delicious as usual at boots. Sorry I've been away for so long!


Now that is one beautiful plum tart. Such gorgeous colour!


Any chance to see any pix of traverse city area? Ya know, dunes, bridges, wineries, local color? Please?

I feel compelled to de-lurk and comment because I've eaten at Frenchie's in Traverse City! I had a terrific meal there, too. If you're back again, there's a sports bar type brewery nearby (I don't recall the name) with average burgers and awesome local brew. I had a Traverse City cherry wheat when I was there and it was divine. Hope you got to see some great autumn leaves while you were there!

Aw, thanks, Skye! Good to see you back. We've been a bit behind as well... as you can tell. Hope all is wonderful with you!

Hi, Ling! Their baked goods were GORGEOUS. We normally aren't much for dessert, but there was no way we could pass that tart up!

Of course, Unty! Stay tuned for pics of the Old Mission Peninsula, then dinner, then the Leelenau, then Sleeping Bear... oh sigh.

Hi, Kathryn! Thanks for your comment. I do hope to get back up to Traverse City, but unfortunately I doubt it will be anytime soon. I'll have to see if I can get the family's interest up in a bit of a Northern Michigan vacation!

We were so thrilled to be in Michigan this fall - being from Chicago and living in Austin, I do sometimes miss the seasons!


I used to live in Traverse City, just a few blocks from Frenchie's Famous, and quickly became a Frenchie's Famous regular. :) French and Alyssa are amazing, and the food and atmosphere there to die for.

I have to point out, though, that the rastafarian-colored storefront next to French's cafe is a great little family-owned party store and disc golf shop, *not* a headshop. It's run by wonderful folks who've done a lot for the community. Didn't want people dismissing the place thinking it's some sketchy headshop!

I'm a regular there. Agree with everything you said! Cocoa is also a great greeter! John Schneider

Hey Emily,

Totally jealous of your Frenchie's proximity. And thanks for the heads up about the not-so headshop. We definitely didn't mean to disparage it. I've actually had quite a few good times in headshops (ahem.) but a family owned party store/disc golf emporium sounds great.

And John we'll have to make it back for the cocao- that sounds amazing about now. Unless of course Cocoa is a person or a dog or something...in which case that makes my comment awkward.
