Caffe Mezza Luna - Half Moon Bay

Went out early in the morning on Saturday with Mom and Dad,
and visited the Point Montara Lighthouse where I sent out my
message in a bottle... (photos will come soon as they were taken
for my B+W photography class, so.. they have yet to be developed).

We continued along HWY 1, stopping over at a farmer's market and
then going to Caffe Mezza Luna - an Italian cafe/restaurant/bakery.

Started off with some hot choco, not the typical super sweeet kind...
Had whipped cream and chocolate powder to top it off.

Mom and I shared a prosciutto and brie panini with a small side salad.
First time I've eaten a panini made with flat bread. The dressing was olive
oil and some type of vinaigrette.

Dad had a ham and egg and cheese crepe with hash browns.
Square hash browns! Haha.
The crepe was good, loaded with cheese.... :)



Dessert: Gelato, of course!
Oreo cookie + creme.... mmmm..... If only McFlurry's were this good....
