Oh hey, delicious food and pastry! Why don't we hang out some time... as in all the time... as in I'm going to eat you right about now.
Ever since they opened up in Ipswich, I've been a fan of Christopher's Kitchen, a specialty food shop that has great chicken salad and quiche on hand. Their baked mac and cheese also isn't too shabby. Nice waitstaff and a sunny location.
Well, I heard through the grapevine that they were now opened for breakfast. I found this ballsy, since Zumi's is down the street from CK and has won over the hearts of Ipswich on a whole. But no town should be a one-horse town, so I also applaud them for getting into it. This morning, thanks to a bad case of seasonal allergies which made me cranky and unable to breath or smell for a few days, I decided to stop in and grab a pastry.
At about 8am, the selection was limited, but I was notified that the bank stopped by just before me. They're trying to get the word out about their pastries to increase traffic at breakfast and lunch. I had a peach amaretto turnover. I must say, very sweet and refreshing. Their muffins looked like they could be good, but I'm the proud owner of a muffin bible now, so I've been holding off on ordering muffins lately. Why buy a muffin when you can make it from your bible?
So if you're in the North Shore, I'd recommend stopping by Christopher's Kitchen for a quick breakfast. All made on site and not a bad way to start your morning.
