And by pain, I mean street agony trying to get around City Market. In your car. Geeze.
I went to Bloom yesterday to buy a birthday cupcake for Bill -- and ended up also buying bread, one of their superb cranberry scones (I swore I'd only eat half this morning), and a rich, rich bread pudding made from their own brioche. Janet O'Toole, co-owner, is an expert at giving you bites of things which then somehow COMPELL purchase. They also do lunches. I've never had a mediocre anything here. If you've not been here, I think it's well worth getting around the current all-directions street destruction.
