A few weeks back (blog post here), our family went on an adventure and took a walk to a famous pizza shop in our neighborhood about a mile away called Luigi’s. By the time we arrived, Luigi’s was closed and it left us defeated and hungry. Two Saturday’s ago, attempt number two was in the works. The sun was shining and we were ready to make our way over to South Slope for lunch.
We headed out the door and down 6th avenue around noon, making a quick stop at Colson Patisserie to pick up a hot coffee and unsweetened iced tea. I discovered this gem of a cafe a few months ago when I started taking James to his baby class. The French bakery is right around the corner and has the most delicious treats. I’ve tried a bunch of different baked goods but my favorites are the almond croissant and the famous teddy bear financier.
A short walk later, we arrived at Luigi’s Pizza. You could see the original pizza sign from a block away which got us even more excited. It wasn’t long before we both had a classic cheese slice in our hands, ready to be eaten. The fresh out of the oven cheese was ooey and gooey and delicious but we couldn’t help ourselves from digging right in. It was definitely one of the best slices I’ve ever had! We grabbed a few more slices to go, I chose a white and Sicilian slice, and Jimmy went with two margherita. We look forward to coming back again!
I love stripes for any season. You can find all my favorite striped finds on this post here. I’ve had this tan spring jacket for a few years but I am loving this, this, and this one! It is light-weight and a perfect layer for cooler mornings or when the sunsets in the evening. The tan color matches everything. I’ve paired the jacket with white jeans, denim, and midi skirts. The built-in hood has me prepared for a rain shower on spring days!
