The first gold rush town of America is a place called Dahlonega and nestled on one side of the public square is the Picnic Cafe and Dessertery. Everything from the bread to the delicious pies and cakes are made on the premises and the service is uber friendly and very warm. The coffee was tasty, although limited to with or without milk, but when I asked for it in a ceramic cup they were more than happy to oblige. Sadly it was not one of their own brand pieces so it has not made into my souvenir collection. I could have brought one but there's no fun in that....... Tried to get some pictures of the Tennessee Hells Angel pack that had arrived in town but they didn't look too friendly - so you will have to use your imagination.
This little ol' trip has definitely been an eye opener - very different from my time in Boston last summer but when I have more time to spend here I hope to discover what I am sure is a place full of artists and creativity.
- love coffee&art

- Coffee lover and frequenter of local cafes as often as possible. Favourite style Cappuccino but when in a hurry double Espresso is fine and when its hot there's nothing like an ice cold Frapaccino! If I haven't already mentioned it I like coffee, chatting, drinking coffee, chatting some more, painting and drinking more coffee.....sleeping....YES I DO SLEEP LOTS........too much sometimes and it is completely over rated! I have collected 1 husband, 2 kids and 2 cats. I have 1 part-time puppy who joins me on trips to my little cafe (she does not like coffee!)and I have been told that I can be very very funny sometimes - I put it down to all the caffeine!
