On Saturday M gave me my first taste of Olga’s Cup and Saucer. I was blown away by the extensive menu and peaceful garden outside, but a warm May morning and a secret spot by the river beckoned (as they do). So we ordered brown bag breakfasts and went dockside. Of course this meant returning to experience the outdoor dining area as soon as possible was nonnegotiable…
It was quite serendipitous, then, when Duck & Bunny‘s Monday hours (or rather, lack thereof) called for a quick change of location for the tea/bridal party duty date my mother and I had planned. We scooted from Fox Point to Point Street in search of fresh salads and a quiet patio. From one bunny to another!
I’m happy to report that our food completely lived up to the expectations set by my wandering eyes a few days prior (I had the teriyaki salmon salad, my mom had the chicken caesar), and the sun drenched patio was every bit as serene as I had hoped it would be. With vibrant basil and scallion plants thriving from banks all around us, I had to keep reminding myself we were still in downtown Providence.
Bravo, Olga. I raise my English breakfast-filled cup (+ saucer) to you.
