After going to Miya’s, Julian and I wanted to go somewhere special for dessert. We were searching for somewhere with a nice atmosphere when we stumbled upon Heirloom. Located inside a hotel, with glass windows looking out on the street, with comfy sofas in the window, we were intrigued. The hostess raved about their desserts, and she was not exaggerating. I ordered Panna Cotta, which normally I would not do because Cafe Tamayo has the best, but this one has rice crispies and blackberries with it, so I was interested. Julian ordered the Peach Donuts (which were actually Beignets) paired with both vanilla sauce and applesauce as dips. Both desserts were exceptional. We couldn’t decide which was better. It made for the perfect date night. Not to mention, the bathroom was one of the nicest I’ve ever been in (with it’s only competition being the one at the BMW Museum).
On our way to Rhode Island, my mom and I stopped here for brunch. I ate the Bananas Foster French Toast. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? Well it was. It was one of the best breakfasts I’ve had. Yummmm.
