Katalina’s Bakery

Katalina’s Bakery

Last week, the three of us ventured to TD-land in search of a satisfying dessert after lunch. Katalina’s Bakery opened last year, but all three of us had yet to try their treats.

Caseus

Caseus

So, if your first reaction was “I don’t like meatballs, they’re just hamburgers that roll off the table and unto the floor” (please please tell me you all get that song reference … Continue reading
