I recently met a girlfriend for coffee at Magnolias Sous Le Pont in the Harwood District. We indulged on the fluffiest croissants ever, red velvet cake pops and cappuccinos. (So healthy right?!) The coffee and food were (obviously) delicious, and the atmosphere is also warm and friendly. They’re currently open Monday-Friday 8 am-6 pm. I really hope they start opening on the weekends, because I would love to spend all afternoon there blogging, catching up on emails, etc. Next time, I’m trying the lavender love latte and the white rose latte! There’s also a ginormous chocolate chip cookie on the menu calling my name. Whether you’re a Dallas local or visitor, you need to add Magnolias to your list for your morning cup of coffee. Remember- if you didn’t Instagram it, it didn’t happen 😉
On another note, you may have noticed Brooke du jour looks a little different this morning. I’m THRILLED to welcome you to the new Brooke du jour! My blog is about to turn 3, so I decided to celebrate with a little makeover thanks to Kelly Christine Studio. I hope you love it as much as I do! I would so appreciate your feedback.
