Checked out a new venue for lunch at SPRUCE. We drove past the usual Dempsey rendezvous to this new place embraced by natural botanics around it. Without any reservations made, we waited 20-25 minutes for a table for 5. It would not have been an ideal situation if anyone of us were moody or grouchy. Cheerful chatter made the wait bearable... and it was well worth waiting for. Food was above par for brunch, better than our usual places at Da Paolo Pizza Bar and PS Cafe. Service was efficient and speedy... water served promptly without being asked.

And the finale? A great cuppa latte! And then, we were off to SBR and Praying for the Nation at the Sanctuary, PL.
