How to start and finish a day
Randolph Bakery, Arlington Virginia (Pastries by Randolph)
One of my favorite things to do, as a matter of routine in London, is to visit the pastry shop in Hampstead for afternoon tea. I long for that experience, especially in the winter season.
Now, however, I have discovered Randolph Bakery in Arlington Virginia where I may start the day with coffee and a raison or current cinnamon roll. Then, I can chose among a variety of pastries to accompany afternoon tea.

This Hungarian old-timer inhabits a fond place in our hearts. It could be its faded charm, in the guise of the sepia-toned, wood-panelled, leather-benched tearoom at the back; the lack of gimmicks; or the loyal band of regulars spanning all ages and persuasions that keep the scenery interesting. It could be all of the above, but most of all we commend the Louis Pâtisserie for its consistently fabulous range of creamy confections – marzipan moon, chestnut slice, strawberry cheesecake – that go down so well with pots of tea.”
