Mother's Day Celebration at Cafe Continental

Aria had made brunch reservations at a lovely little restaurant near the Capitol Building called, "Cafe Continental". It is located at 108 King Street (tel. 608.251.4880)
It has the feel of a neighborhood Parisian restaurant. We had a small private room in the back of the cafe.
After a long, leisure meal, plenty of coffee and three scrumptious desserts we were off to tour the Botanical Gardens.

Jocelyn, Aria and me. A very, memorable Mother's Day!
P.S. We loved this place so much we returned the next day to try the French toast with carmelized apples that we were too full to order on Sunday. To our dismay they were not serving the brunch menu on we "had" to order off the luncheon menu instead and they "had to" twist our arms to order more desserts again...whoa, the waiter's recommendation for bananas foster with hot rum sauce and vanilla ice cream...killer!
Tomorrow's post: Mother's Day continued with a tour of Olbrich Gardens...

Too bad you couldn't have brunch but sounds like they made up for it. I'm glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day.
