A friend of mine recently told me that she goes out of town so often because when she comes home her head is clear and she can see things in a different light. I never put it into words myself but that's exactly what this San Francisco trip was... enlightening. I love Chico (which is why I chose to live here) but there's something delightful about finding hidden paths and enjoying new places.
Tell Tale Preserve Co. is just that... new, fresh, enlightening and delightful. With a new pâtisserie and delicatessen opening Spring 2011 (on Maiden Lane off Union Square in San Francisco) their "trunk show" location is where we found them...attached to Big Daddy Antiques by way of one interior door to the shop and one exterior door to the world beyond.
As you can see, Tell Tale Preserve Co., is by no means a normal cafe to enjoy your coffee and delectables.
Their cafe/showroom exhibits their pastries, etc like works of art (which they may well be) and houses a well, trunk-load of antiques to admire and be entertained by while benefitting from a cup of joe.
They were (almost) sold out for the day but had we been earlier we would've seen these rustic stools displaying all of their pastries.
Wheelbarrow wheels replaces canvas.
With just a few specially placed jars, flowers and tables this cafe is simple, demure and completely inviting.
And with the slight opening of a door you're in a entirely new fantastical world...
