DUCKS AND BUNNIES, AND DRINKS, OH MY!

Julia Trogani - June 1, 2016

I kept hearing about the Duck & Bunny from friends…and seeing Facebook posts of delectable treats…and a pretty little garden to relax and unwind in. Curious,  I looked up their website: It’s a “snuggery,” it said – a real word meaning a “cosy and comfortable place”. Well, who wouldn’t want to spend time at a snuggery?

Equal parts bar, bistro and cafe, the space is divided into 3 distinct dining areas plus garden patio seating. I have had the good fortune to dine in each of them over the last year: crepes and lattes in the dining room, brunch in the garden, tea in the rear sitting room and, today, cocktails in the cafe/cupcake bar.

Settling into the elegant yet cosy tufted banquette seating that lines the walls, we perused the menu. Marble tables, cafe chairs, and crystal chandeliers give this room a fanciful feel, reminding me of some of the beautiful old world cafe’s you find in Europe. There are an abundance of coffee, tea and cupcake options featured on a chalkboard over the counter, but today we are here for the drinks!

The Duck & Bunny has a creative cocktail menu and offers a variety of beer and wine choices (the menu features drink recommendations for each meal). After deliberating over the tempting selection of appetizers and cocktails, we decided on a sweet and salty combination: Tori ordered the Chamisa (Muddled basil and pear with Prosecco) and I went for the Rose Sangria (Sofia Rose with peaches, strawberries, raspberries and Peche Lambic) adding to these a savory plate of the bacon wrapped dates which were absolutely delicious. The perfect happy hour bites! Click here to peruse the full menu.
