Great restaurant and wine bar on Grand Canal Square. The burgers were very good if a bit greasy. Nice atmosphere and huge portions. Prices reasonable for Dublin.

Urth Caffé - Pasadena
594 E Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA, United States
Tiffany Cheung's rating: 4 Jul 20, 2014
So glad there's an Urth closer to the San Gabriel Valley! This location is quite nice, located on a corner with outside patio seats (under heated lamps) and indoor seating as well. The building seems ... read more
to be very historical, with the bricks and whatnot - really gives a nice ambiance to this place along with the dim lighting inside. They have everything the other Urth Caffes have - cakes, pastries, coffee, latte, food - and the prices are pretty standard. I came here twice within two weeks. On the first visit, my roommates and I had just finished eating at Tender Greens, and we all walked in with a cup of lemonade in our hands. Apparently Urth has a policy where you are not allowed to bring in food from other restaurants, and offered to take ours to toss out and give us on the house Urth lemonades instead. We declined, opting to order to-go. I was able to try their a slice of their berries & cream cake and the blueberry cheesecake as well. Both were really amazing and decadent, but I preferred the berries and cream, only because it tasted a lot lighter than the cheesecake. With the whipped cream and the milk cake, the berries and cream didn't taste heavy at all, while the cheesecake was so rich that after a couple of bites, I had to stop. The price is decent. Around $14 for both desserts. I came back another night to have a drink and sit outside on the patio. The chairs aren't too comfortable, and unless you sit directly under a heated lamp, it can get incredibly cold. My boyfriend and I each ordered a drink, which took really long for them to make. We waited about 15 to 20 minutes for the drinks. I was disappointed that the latte art we got were not recognizable. I think one was a bird and the other an eyeball skeleton? It's not about the art, but the taste, I know - but the art adds something extra! The honey vanilla latte was pretty good; not too sweet, but not too bitter. I think I liked this drink better than my boyfriend's English Tea latte. I believe he ordered the Japanese tea first, but they were all out of matcha green tea, so he opted for the English tea, which wasn't bad, but at the same time, I prefer milk tea at boba places to this English tea. Service was pretty friendly the both times I went. The girls who took our order were extremely nice and joked around with my roommates as we decided which desserts to order. I did think it was odd that as we stood there deciding what to order, the girl standing by the door kept trying to move us along into the line. We didn't move at first because we weren't sure what we wanted, but she seemed insistent that we move all the way in ... even when there weren't any customers behind us. Both times, too! Odd - nice place to get a cup of coffee or splurge on dessert. Their food choices seem just a bit too expensive for me (most run from $10 up), but I definitely will be back for their coffee and their desserts!

Courtyard Dallas Market Center
2150 Market Center Boulevard, Dallas, Texas

The lobby of Courtyard is refreshing. It felt like I was walking into a cafe/bistro with large chairs throughout the edges where guests sat chatting idly. The decor is striking, playing with bright ... read more
hues of red, gold and green. It was truly a treat for the eyes. The same goes for the rooms; they were hip, yet elegant. No landscape paintings here, but rather small photos of stones and mosaics. Kudos to the designer of this distinct hotel. This hotel made me feel exactly how a hotel should make you feel: I didn't want to leave.

in this part of town. Not just any garden, but a lovely one! The snack options are also great: quinoa salad, cucumber and mint gazpacho, French baguette sandwiches, what more can one desire?

The Adairsville Historic District is small is size, but more than makes up for it with the quality of the architecture within the historic downtown.

St. Mary's Convent was built in the nineteenth century. It is one of the exquisite buildings in all of Victoria.
