Well, hello. Welcome to a delicious post. Here is a collection of my most recent bites that are calling my name for return visits and more menu-delving. Doesn’t this picture of the pull-apart monkey bread Abby and I shared for starters at our Old Town brunch at Kanela make you want to grab a piece and dive right in? It was delectably sweet, moist, and reminded me of an apricot coffee cake Mom makes sometimes. (Hi, Mom!) Just like the name (cinnamon in Spanish), I felt like I could taste the kanela in this happy, comforting way to kick off the morning. With a menu that praises fresh ingredients, many of which are local (victory dance!), Kanela was an adorable little breakfast cafe sitting on the main stretch of Wells in Old Town. My Egg White omelette (I feel like only legit breakfast spots spell it with the double ‘t’) with mushrooms, avocado, tomato, onions, green pepper, salsa, and toast was a protein and vitamin-packed choice to counteract the decadence we started with, of course. Personally, I might need to go back to try the Banana Split crepe (with nutella, need I say more?), Strawberry waffle with creme fraiche, Kanela Chip Pancakes with honey butter, or maybe even the Chicken Pesto sandwich or Black Bean Burger.
