Ruby Tuesday - Butter your bread


Today's Ruby Tuesday is a bit offbeat, to say the least. Our intrepid 'waiter' is standing guard at the entrance la Petite France Bakery on Cape Cod. This gentleman's shirt has the style akin to the classic checkerboard tablecloth. I do not know if the ruby pink on the door is an apron, but it qualifies in having a red motif as well. What impressed us is that we could order a simple breakfast of a strong coffee and an authentic baguette en beurre before the tourists arrived (I know, we were tourists as well!). We sat at the tables outside and relaxed while the warm bread melted the butter. Another ruby on the Cape!

Although
not red, the outside sign is so attractive it is also included. Find your reds at Mary's site that is sans égal!

He is a cute chef! A pleasant sign as well, even if they forgot to include red for Ruby Tuesday. The bread looks yummy.

A slightly different looking chef in checkered red top other than the normal whitish one :)
Happy Ruby Tuesday Ralph!

This sounds mouthwatering! We have a Petite France Bakery in Stockholm too, voted the best café 2008 in our largest morning newspaper. If the Cape Cod version is anything like it I'm positive you had a wonderful breakfast! And yes, being there well before the not so distinguished tourists is a good thing when on holiday...;)

It sounds like someplace we'd love to eat. Too bad it's so far away.
Happy RT.

Summer on Cape sounds wonderful to me right about now. It's still snowing here and temps will be close to zero for next couple of days. Brrr...
