The first stop over on our travels – Irma’s house in Centurion (Gauteng province). After a quick bite to eat and some catching up with everyone, she informed me that she had a special assignment to take care of. Believe it or not, her daughter that is in the USA asked her to pick up a few surprises for a very special friend. How romantic? We had to go and get a cupcake, some sparkles and a few other birthday surprises. So off we went to a quaint little strip mall around the corner from her house.
This is where we find a delightful little Coffee shop called Isabella’s. It is tastefully decorated in a pink candy stripe paired with black damask. More than just a few lovely chandeliers cast a welcome glow over the interior. A warm welcome from the owner and a few suggestions as to the cupcake keep us busy for a while. Naturally we cannot help but note the cakes on the display. We end up making a new friend and promptly decide to have some of the lovely fare. Who can resist decadent cake and foam cappuccino’s?
Our plates arrive with fresh roses dusted with icing sugar – nice touch!
The fountain outside attracts 2 little girls who get rid of their shoes and splash around in the water. While I’m enjoying the treat, my eyes wander to the rest of the interior. Just like I expected – not a single nook has gone without a lot of thought & attention given. A gem where simply everything makes you want to linger longer.
