Have Your ‘Cake’ and Eat it Too – Intolerants Redux

I like looking at pretty little things, and enjoy window shopping even if my Intolerant self is unable to indulge. That’s why I still think Cake café in Cairo is nice place to hide away when you need a time out from the big city.

Even though I haven’t been able to indulge in anything other than herbal tea and salads (I keep pushing for the production of a dairy and gluten free treat…fingers still crossed), I enjoy the looks of pleasure that flit across friend’s faces when they bite into a moist chocolate cupcake or a crisp oatmeal cookie.

Drool worthy.

Drool worthy.

I especially love unexpected comments that are blurted out when a tangy slice of a lemon bar brings up fond memories of grandma’s baked goods. I mean, there’s nothing better than grandma’s cake.

Though Cake tries its best, and comes pretty damn close.
