Hubby and I love living up here in the hills. It’s a bit rural, sometimes a pain to go to for those living in the city, but we’ve gotten used to it and fell in love with its countryside charm. I can no longer imagine living in the congested city. I need the vast expanse of greenery, the cacophony of chirping birds early in the morning, the fluttering butterflies and occasional firefly sightings… Nature is my therapy.
But, living up here means no huge malls or big box stores, no deli, no decent gym, and very few decent restaurants, bars and coffee shops. That’s the trade off. We even have to go down to the city for vet services.
So, having discovered SEGA COFI came as a pleasant surprise!
It’s a tiny coffee shop next to a car repair shop in the commercial section of town. Nothing fancy at all but they serve good food, strong coffee and I am dying for their cakes!!!
My current fave is called TORTA SEGA, that I especially enjoy with brewed coffee.
I don’t really know how to describe it accurately but the cake is light and spongy, with a layer of creamy frosting, and the whole cake is covered by what seems to be an egg yolk based frosting that’s sprinkled with sugar and torched prior to serving. Ah, heaven!
There are only a few items in the menu but so far the ones we’ve tried were all winners.
The cheeseburger’s a big plate! I love the chips too!
Hubby’s fave pasta – shrimp gamberi.
For city dwellers, this cafe might be just another statistic. But, for us up here, it’s one of the best! Definitely better than driving all the way down to the city! 🙂
