Holy Belly 1-Jessie Kanelos Weiner-thefrancofly.com

I’ve really got the best of both worlds, food styling and illustrating.  I love collaborating on photo shoots, the lengthy French lunches and the back-patting and high-fiving that I have shared when creating a beautiful image.  And illustrating indulges my introverted ways: all-day NPR, working barefoot and making cakes when distracted.  But it’s a bit lonely working from home.  When the self-talking begins, I know it’s time to get out of the house.  Even without a set coffee date, I have acquired a few places where I am warmly greeted and can regain a pinch of sanity before mon mari gets home at night.

Today I have found my new place, Holybelly.  I met Nico and Sarah, its kind and charismatic owners, a few months back at a dinner hosted by Kinfolk Magazine.  Since their pending café promised their contagious passion for good food and hospitality, I began counting down the days.   The grand opening was today!

A perfect latté and pecan cookie were just what I needed to fuel a massive to-do list and carry on with my day.

      Hi Cynthia, happy to read your comment. HolyBelly is all about local, fresh ingredients. I believe the name is an expression of that. Enjoy your day!
